Persian Salt Bag—Shafi


The Namakdan, or Salt Bag was used to store not only rock salt for the shepherd to feed his animals, but also cooking salt for use in the tent. It was always very tightly woven and with a narrow neck which folds over to prevent spillage.

This is a very attractive Persian saltbag with beautiful weaving on the front and back and lovely colours throughout. It would make a lovely wall hanging, table piece or collectors item.
