Old black wool and cotton Tagari tote bag with red, gold, and green stripes with a black backing. The man color of the bag is black, with vertical stripes. The outermost stripes are four thin red stripes followed by two thicker red stripes. After the red stripes, there is a thick stripe with green and white on the outside, followed by red and green, and then black and yellow in the middle. Next is a stripe with red on the outside and a thick band of black and yellow on the inside. Then there is a thin row of yellow stripes followed by a thick red and yellow stripe in the middle. The back of the bag is completely made of black cotton and looks rather worn.
Tagaris are used as purses or to collect produce, such as olives. They are traditionally made out of wool.
