Persian Bagface - Safia

$1,600.00

Safia is a Persian Bakhtiari bagface.

This bagface is in excellent condition. Woven by the Nomadic people of Bakhtiari in Iran. The original function of this piece was to carry goods on the back of an animal such as a donkey or camel. When the back of a saddle bag became badly word, they were removed and the ornate front section was kept as a family heirloom or possible dowry.

These make excellent feature rugs and runners and are now difficult to find as there are less nomadic tribes who use items like these. They are becoming collectors items and hold their value.
