Item Ref



Bold and visually stunning with beautiful natural dyes, this namakdan (salt-bag) has just arrived from Iran.
Woven in dove-tailed tapestry-weave by Luri nomads in the environs of Varamin in north-central Persia circa 1900, the bag is in excellent condition. Interestingly, the weaver has knotted a band of pile at the base of the bag for resilience and on the plain-weave back, she has inserted seven bands in white cotton from the neck upwards.
For a similar example, see Parviz Tanavoli's 'Salt Bags - Tribal & Rural Weaves from Iran' page 72.
Size: 56cm x 38cm (1' 10" 1' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
