The creation of this twined bag is the result of revitalization work for Myaamia textile arts. The bag uses a hand dyed commercially spun linen warp and twined weft. The work has been entirely created by hand with no tools or frames. The bag tapers slightly and features no seams and a braided top edge. The design features a geometric representation of the typical motifs depicting ciinkwia and lenipinšia—the diamonds represent the sky plane and the waves represent the water plane.
