My mum's old sewing basket

Unless all the snow, we still spend the weekend in the eastern part of the Netherlands, visiting my mother-in-laws and my parents.
When I was a kid my mum had an old sewing basket, to keep her embroidery thread. I still remembered it. So on this lazy sunday morning at my parents house I asked my mum if she still got it. And yes she found it on the attic.
She made this at school when she about 15 years old, so I can tell you it's over 50 years old. The condition is rather good, it still got bright colours, and it only needs a few repairs.
It's about 11 inches high and made from wool and jute. My mum and I decided to make new ones, so now we're in the search for some wool and jute.
