Default Uzbek bags - timing on the market

I can add that I bought 2 bags of this design in Peshawar in late 1983 (I only own one of them now), from a shop with a number of similar bags, and nothing much else if I recall correctly. (
Possibly (this is just a guess) the Russian presence in Afghanistan caused them to come on the market around then. Certainly many rugs (including a few Luri/Bakhtiari saddle bags) were coming to Pakistan then, many of them already labelled with a price (in Arabic text).
I'll take a photo and try to post it soon - it's the same sort of design but has a four sided, sewn on band of 'fringes'. Interesting discussion, thanks
