Drawstring bag

Drawstring bags focus on the fastening of the bag being closed through pulling the string at the edge of the top of the bag. They often form a rounded structure when closed and can date as far back as medieval times, usually being paired with a soft cloth in a small shaped pouch. Drawstrings bags may also be referred to as duffel bags, rucksacks and medicine bags and can be associated with many trends and cultural groups.
