Egg Bag Types:  There are essentially two types of egg bags, and many variations on these.

The Malini Egg Bag is made of lightweight silken material, usually in black, and uses a lightweight egg.

The Tarbell/Sterling/Albini/Mardo bags are usually made of a heavier material, such as felt, and use a heavy egg.
