”A man’s worth is kept in his purse,” or so your father used to say. And as the third-biggest merchant from Tarbean, he certain knew what he was talking about.
A good purse needs to hold all sorts of regional currency, from Cealdish jots, to golden marks, crowns, drabs, ingots, pennies and coppers. None of it is ever far from your hand, or your sturdy leather purse.
Epic Armoury’s Petroleum/Brown Merchant Purse is a moderately sized wool and leather purse designed to hold coins or other personal keepsakes. The reinforced-bottom purse is made from wool blend and top-grain leather and is tied shut with a leather cord drawstring. The same drawstring is long enough that it can be tied to your belt in order to keep it close at hand.
The Mechant Purse can carry a lot, including anything up to 23 cm in length. Beautiful purses like this one are useful accessories and great for adding final touches to your character.
Available in colours Petroleum/Brown, Red/Brown and Beige/Brown.
- Historically referred to and used like a “pocket” before pockets were added to clothing
- Pouches worn at the belt have been found in Swedish and English burial sites pre-dating 1000 A.D.
