Rich, from memory, there were a number of bags with this design - certainly more than 2 I bought. I reckon there were not masses of stock in the shop anyway, and possibly there were some kilims also - I may have been focussed on bags at the time for financial reasons.

My bag doesn't seem to be brand new - it has always had a hole in the back; although the wool is not soft, the bag has some 'suppleness' if that means anything. The other bag was not identical - a bit more rectangular and seemed a bit more 'used' if my memory serves me well (which it may not).

The fringe part seems to be goat hair, or partly so at least. The bag is 53 cm by 51 cm. (21" by 20")
