Remains

My grandmother Eleni, born in 1900, could make many things herself and did not waste any useful materials. She could do magic with fabric and transformed all remains of used textile into tiny bags in which she kept other things as herbs, sugar etc.
Following her example, I made bags from my leftovers of white fabric to store everything of her personal belongings that I have found after she has past away in 1986.
