Afghan Saddle Bag—Vahida


The Saddle Bag or "Yastik" was used as a means of transporting baggage & possessions. It was also important for a girl to weave a variety of bags for her dowry, so as a result they are often extremely well woven & finely detailed.

Today, old tribal bags are becoming hard to find, but are keenly sought after as Collectors items.

This is an antique double-faced Aimaq Balouch bag from Afghanistan. A finely woven piece that is still in excellent original condition.
