Description

Chuvals were made in pairs with flat-woven backs and were large bedding-bags for tying to the flanks of the camel during long migrations. This chuval has lost its flat-woven back - and its mate - but nevertheless a nice example made by Yomut Turkmen around 1900.
Size: 1.22m x 0.79m (4' 0" x 2' 7").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/AE4
