The design for the pouch was inspired by Pliny the Elder’s (an Ancient Roman author and natural philosopher) view on hedgehogs. The hedgehog is a Roman symbol of knowledge. Pliny the Elder said that hedgehogs would kick grapevines to make the grapes fall to the ground. They would then roll in the grapes to impale them on their spikes.
I hand printed these brown taffeta pouches with a hand carved Hedgehog stamp on my etching press. I finished the pouches with brown and cream coloured poly-satin ribbons, brown organza ribbon and iridescent cream, pearlesque brown and clear moss coloured plastic beads. The pouches are lined with cream coloured taffeta.
They are great for storing all sorts of things, such as: Tarot Cards (the pouch will fit a deck of 70mm x120mm tarot cards), Gem Stones, Rune Stones, Dice, Jewellery etc..
Size: approx. 15cm x 20,5cm
Please be aware that colours may differ slightly due to screen display.
You will only receive the pouch when ordering this; the stones and dice in the photos are not included!
