Antique Afshar saddle bag (half) with great colours made into a cushion

 

Origin: Afshar tribes of Iran (Persia).

Materials and method: The pile is hand spun sheep’s wool dyed with colours from natural dye sources with a high degree of colour saturation. The back is plain flat weave. The bag was made into a cushion recently and is stuffed with a pillow filled with down.

 

Condition: Reasonable level of pile but clearly used and worn. The pile is however soft and pleasant to touch (or recline on).
