A New Game Bag
Over last winter, I picked up some jute fabric in a herringbone pattern. The fabric is a bit coarse, but strong, and looked like it would make a nice fabric for a haversack or game bag. Jute fabric has been around for a long time; the British East India Company imported it from India in the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, so a game bag made from jute fabric is a historical possibility, albeit based on guesswork and supposition, rather than on any historical example.
