antique mafrash panel azeri tribes azerbaijan

Antique Mafrash Panel, Azeri Tribes, Azerbaijan.



Item Ref



This stunning panel once consisted of the base and two side panels of a 'mafrash' - a large woven bedding bag - made by Azeri tribes in Azerbaijan during the 19th century. The workmanship is superb and shows the amazing work that these nomadic tribes produced in making a simple utilitarian bag for containing bedding. Generally made in pairs, this and the two side panels are all that remain of this wonderful item.
Viewing by appointment only.
