Braided drawstrings of 14th century knitted purses from Sion

Here's a paper on the braided drawstrings of the 14th century knitted purses from Sion, Switzerland:

The paper mentions that these purses are on display in drawers. If so, does any one know more about this? Isis and I visited Sion just to see these purses, among other things, but we couldn't find them and the museum people didn't seem to know about them either...

And in the same issue of this newsletter, there is cute picture of a fresco of the Virgin and Jesus working on fingerloop braiding together:
