Beautiful, bright, vegetable colours glow in this charming pillow-bag (balisht in Persian), made by Baluch nomads in the region of Firdows around 1900. The bag would have been stuffed with cotton and used as a pillow or for simply lounging on inside the tent. In excellent condition with full, lustrous pile, the bag retains its original plain-weave back.
