This is a traditional style of  bag made from a single length of folded and stitched fabric.   The triangular 'horns' that give it its name can be tied like a furoshiki to create a handle. Because the material is on the bias it has quite a bit of stretch.  These types of bags were often used for storing and carrying grain etc and so were made from a sturdy bast fibres.
