This bag is superb, well made and seems very sturdy (pull-chords included). I will definitely be ordering more out of the same series from Lo Scarabeo.
A few things to know before buying:
* I measured it, and the dimensions listed are correct, but they are correct when empty. Once a 78 card deck is in there, the entire listed height and width aren't available. That should be obvious (it's sort of how any flat bag works) but I thought I'd let people know. I have a larger deck in it now though (The Druidcraft Tarot), and it looks/closes just fine.
* The toggles on the pull-chords are made of cloth. Looking at the picture now, that seems really clear, but I had assumed they were some kind of plastic or painted wood. It personally makes no difference to me, but again, just so you know before buying.
*The emblem is embroidered, not stamped, on. A few of the Celtic series bags (I imagine because of the intricacy of the knots) are stamped on...
It isn't often that a product is better than expected, but this is one of those times. I absolutely love this bag. It's a soft, light weight material, with nicely done embroidery work, and it feels fairly durable.
But FAIR WARNING: I don't know if the makers had to switch their materials or if the picture is just wrong, but the colors shown are not quite right. The cloth is several shades darker, and the embroidery is a kind of limy-yellow-green. The effect is a much darker/warmer color-scheme than one would expect from the image.
That said, I actually like this bag much better than the image, and have no real complaints. It really is a beautiful bag.
They fit a standard sized deck of Tarot cards, which are usually bigger than normal sized playing cards, with a little room to spare in case you have even bigger cards (like "Oracle cards"). That curved top flap thingie on the top of the bag you see in the picture, above the 2 drawstrings...? I wondered what the heck that was too. When you draw the drawstrings closed & tie them off, they scrunch up and give the bag a sort of medieval "pouch" look. I'd post a photo here if I could/knew how to show you what I mean. Soft velour inside & out, handsome looking pouch.
