This is a fine piece of handicraft made in Swedish Lapland. The indigenous Sami traditionally used (and still use) leather bags made from their reindeer to store meat, coffee, salt, and flour. 

It is also an ideal bag to store tinder or other firelighting material, or other items you may require in the outdoors. It is a superior leather being very durable whilst still being supple and lightweight.

The bag is made from 1.2 mm fully vegetable tanned (bark tanned) reindeer leather from freely grazing reindeer in Lapland. Vegetable tanning gives the leather a natural water-repelling effect and is better for the environment than chromium tanning.

The bag measures about 23cm (9 inches) x 11cm (4.33 inches) x 6cm (2.36 inches).
