The finds of purses/sabretache with front side coating of metal sheets are of considerable interest for the study of the cultural ties of the population of the Vetluga-Vyatka interfluvial area. Purses/sabretache, decorated with sheets and plates, are well known since the 10th century in the Carpathian basin and East European region, and even found on some Scandinavian burial grounds. Items of this type in the Vetluga-Vyatka interfluve were found on the Veselovsky, Rusenikha and Anatkasy burial grounds. But, unfortunately, the finds are poorly preserved, which does not allow a complete reconstruction of the items. In 2019, another handbag was found on the Krasnogorsk burial ground of Mari culture of the 10th century. A good preservation of organic matters and a comprehensive study of the details of the sabretache made it possible to reconstruct the full view of the item. The find from burial 8 of the Krasnogorsk burial ground was examined against a background of wide analogies from the medieval sites of the Carpathian basin, East European and Eurasian regions that allowed to find the place of the item in the system of international connections and to take a closer look at the issue of the genesis and ways of spread of this type of objects.
