Monk's Travel Satchel
Size: 16 inches (40.5cm) deep x 19 inches (48.5cm) wide
From Folk Bags: "The religion of Nepal is a mixture of Buddhism and Hinduism, and the monks who traveled southwest China, Nepal, and Tibet traditionally carried large bags. Some were brightly colored, some were faded by time - but beautifully toned, nonetheless. The monks carried all their earthly goods in these bags, so pockets inside and out were a useful feature. Since I love the organization that pockets provide, I designed this bag with five separate spaces in addition to the spacious capacity of the main compartment."
