Antique Saddle Bag—Basira

$595.00

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 Soumak bag from SW Afghanistan. Unusual piece that is still in excellent original condition. Can be stuffed to create a beautiful floor cushion or displayed as it is.
