Medieval Leather Bags
In the U.K. on Twelfth Night, January 6th, it is traditional for all Christmas decorations to be taken down and carefully packed away ready for next year. It is widely believed that leaving your Christmas decorations up longer than twelve days following Christmas will court bad luck.
The Duc de Berry himself is depicted on the right, in blue, seated at the lavishly-laden table. It’s fascinating to see how fashion styles evolve over the centuries, or maybe they actually don’t. Look carefully at the medieval leather bags. Similar designs are still in fashion today. For example, Bolla Bags makes an excellent quality leather bag which evokes the medieval style of the day at £56.95. Available from realhandbagshop.co.uk
