Description

The small leather pouch has a semicircular flap for closure and fringe on the opposite end. There are red beads down either side and a broken line of dark blue beads on the flap. The front has green triangles at the bottom of the pouch and there are three vertical red lines (two with circles on top) with light blue pigment inside. The back has the same design, but the vertical lines and circles are dark blue with green inside the circle.
