bag (land transport: human powered)

Open work string fibre bag. Made of narrow string formed from twisted fibre strands, using a knotted technique to form open squares on the diagonal. Made in one piece, with opening on one side. Flat, square shape but slightly wider at the open top, with rounded corners at the bottom. The top has a rim of plaited cane stripes, with an additional loop on each of the two corners (as it lies flat).
