Object Description
Black wool Tagari tote bag with white, green, and blue stripes and black-and-white cord strap. The black and white cord strap goes all the way down along the outside of the bag and has a tassel at the end. The top and bottom of the bag is black, followed by a white strip in the middle which makes up about 1/3 of the bag and has other colored stripes on it. On the outside, it has a thin blue stripe, followed by a thin orange stripe, then an thin brown stripe, then another thin blue stripe. There is then a thicker white stripe followed by an even thicker blue stripe. Then there is another white stripe followed by a thin blue stripe and a thin orange stripe. The design meets in the middle with a brown stripe.
Tagaris are bags that are usually made with a single strip of woven wool, which is then folded and has the other edges sewn together in order to form a bag. They have been used as purses or in order to carry produce, such as olives.
