This sandbag was made with 100% linen, which gives it the floppiness of the original prop. It is tied shut with a piece of round leather. Fill it with sand and you're ready to enter the temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors!
Made of a thick brown denim, this version is also machine stitched, rivited with eight metal eyelets and tied shut by a braided cotton string. This heavier material is stronger than the linen, but still has a bit of floppiness to it.
I also made the bag on the left in a lighter coloured canvas to match the appearance of the prop just before Indy enters the temple. It was then aged with a mixture of acrylic paints and coffee. The canvas is a much tougher material and stiffer than the above versions.
