Tobacco pouches history of appearance

A convenient, small bag for storing tobacco was not created for this purpose. Initially, it was used by the steppe peoples to store money, then the accessory migrated to Turkey and Europe. Later, not only money, but also jewelry of small sizes began to be stored in a pouch. And tobacco for a true connoisseur is the very jewel. The skin from which the pouches are sewn retains the aroma of tobacco without adding foreign odors to it. The bag does not allow moisture to pass through, which means it retains the properties of tobacco and protects the contents from mechanical damage.
