Item Ref



This salt-bag (namakdan) is as fine as they come. Beautiful soumak weaving throughout with a compartmentalised design and superbly woven at the top opening with slits inserted for the ties to secure the bag during migrations. The neck section on the back of the bag had worn away and I sent the bag back to Iran to have the neck part re-woven, bringing the bag back to its original condition which I see as important on such a rare and stunning bag. This salt-bag was woven by Afshar nomads in the Bardsir region of Kerman Province around 1880.
