Default Bagged it!


A little more digging turned up this little piece which, from the front, looks a lot more like your little bag. I located it in a drawer, in the drawering room.

The skeletal field motifs look as though they are almost a wagireh or sampler of tiny motifs found in various Kurdish weavings.

It is 10" x 10" (25cm x 25cm) with 9h x 10v symmetric knots for 90kpsi.
It also happens to be single wefted. Here is yours to compare:

And the back:

With some dark blue and some red, single wefts, compared to yours with dark, double wefts, they likely weren't made by the same tribal group, although both may be Kurdish. Neither seem closely related to the infamous Brown Bag. But hey, it's always nice to view some interesting, old tribal weavings and toss around questionable attributions, right?
