In 19th century Tibet, many men would have carried a flint pouch along with several other tools that could help ensure survival in the often-harsh climate of the Tibetan Plateau. A flint pouch has a compartment to hold a shard of flint and a dull metal blade at its bottom for striking the flint to create sparks for fire. This leather flint pouch is more elaborate than most, decorated with a silver dorje, a symbol of wisdom.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
