The Manuscript Codex * Enclosures
BAG

A rectangular piece of cloth of which three corners are folded into the middle and sewn together to create a soft enclosure. The fourth corner of the cloth then forms a flap adjacent to the opening of the enclosure. When a manuscript is slipped inside, this flap can be folded over it to close the bag and the manuscript is better protected during transport or storage.
