Finally, I've found the reference for the ca 1340 French pouch in Krakow (I wrote about that one here). It's in this book:
Von Wilckens, L. (1991). Die textilen Künste von der Spätantike bis um 1500. München: Verlag C. H. Beck. ISBN 978-3406353635
On page 206 you will find two small b&w images of this pouch, one of the front and one of the back. On the side that I didn't get to see, the cap of the bearded man is pulled down. I must confess that the meaning of this all is a bit of a mystery to me :-) I scanned the German text, but so far, I haven't read anything related to this pouch. If anyone of you knows more, we'd love to hear about it!
By the way, this book is a real must-have if you're interested in medieval textiles. The book covers the following chapters:
- weaving up to the 7th century
- woven silks 7-13 th century
- woven narrow bands and borders
- woven silks 1300-1500
- woven fabrics, linen ,wool and mixed fabrics
- dyed and printed fabrics
- “other” techniques (sprang, knitting)
It contains a lot of images, both b%w and in color, and is has a substantial amount of images I haven't seen in other books, or only in references which are hard to find and/or very expensive. I really enjoyed the chapter on embroidery, with quite detailed images of German 14th century whitework.
