The carrier will be made up of either 100% cotton or 100% polyester textile materials. The bag features a top zipper closure with an end opening designed to permit the dog’s head to protrude. The bag body is padded and has a removable interior cushion. The bag has double woven carrying straps. Your sample is being returned as requested.
