To make anti-theft pouches and bags.
Mokeskin (also stylised moke skin and moke-skin) is the hide of a moke. It retains the property of its owner to shrink when approached by someone unfamiliar, and is thus used to make moneybags, purses, and pouches. Gloves can also be made from the material, and are sold at Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions. Harry Potter received such a pouch for his seventeenth birthday from Rubeus Hagrid.
Behind the scenes
- The reasoning behind making gloves out of mokeskin is unclear, as the skin's properties of shrinking upon approach of a strangers would presumably make wearing them uncomfortable.
