Item Ref



This salt-bag - 'namakdan' in Persian - has to be handled to appreciate the wonderful tactile quality of the bag. It is chunky! The front face is woven in thick overlay/underlay brocading with a stunning use of sky-blue on the madder-red background and the back is in white cotton plain-weave with semi-depressed warps, providing a strong structure and an amazing handle. Particularly attractive, is the knotted-pile base in diagonal stripes of mid blue, turquoise, aubergine, red and golden-yellow.
This fabulous namakdan is in excellent condition and retaining its original braided hanging cord.
Woven by Sanjabi Kurds in Kurdistan around 1900.
