An opened Qashghai grain sack Number, 166157

It is incredible to see how much work is put into a simple object of utility such grain sack for use on a mule back. The piece here is a beautiful example with a fantastic texture and work. The stitches of this piece are unfastened to make it into a decorative floor covering.

A young nomadic Qashqai girl has made this piece around mid 20th century, most probably as a dowry item.
100% handspun wool.
