Shoulder bags with a wooden bag handle are known since the Viking Age. There are 4 different finds from Haithabu, which all had different shapes and sizes. There were also finds of such wooden bag handles in Birka (Sweden) and Viborg (Denmark).
However, the functionality of the shoulder bag could only be deduced from later finds from Lapland.
The bag handles from Haithabu were made of ash and maple Wood.
Our bag handle bags are made of high quality maple wood. The bag made of sturdy leather is sewn to the wide eyelets of the bag hanger. The two-sided eyelets provide for bringing through the hemp rope, which serves as a shoulder strap.
