Due to popular demand, here is the back of the brown bag:

This is where a section of the side was reattached to the end:

The curly "warp" ends were formerly weft threads contorted around the warps, giving them a bushy, twisted appearance.
The undepressed knots are symmetric, ruling out an Afshar provenance. There are no offset knots to indicate a Kurdish origin.
