Kilim Floor Cushion


This large floor cushion was originally a Saddlebag made in Afghanistan. The Saddlebag 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 old saddlebag has 3 closed sides and one remains open, perfect for stuffing with padding.
