I've made this on a classic tubular carpet bag frame, from vintage Malian mudcloth fabric and combined it  with  English dark tan leather trim and lined it in a heavy woven cotton newspaper print fabric. I have put a layer of wool wadding between  the layers of fabrics as I read it was a traditional method. There is a leather lined pocket on the front under the flap which fastens with a magnetic fastener, and a flap with an antiqued brass turnlock. It has 2 heavily piped 15.5" (39cms) straps,a hardened base with 5 brass anti-scratch feet. The interior has one large zipped pocket and one divided patch pocket. 
Dimensions are a spacious 15.5"(39cms) wide, 16" (38cms) deep with 7" (18cms) sides.
