Finally, an image perhaps unworthy of our attention, but to show that this format is still being woven, here is an image from Chris Walter's most recent "Cultural Survival" shipment. These pieces are vegetal dyes and handspun wools woven by Afghan Ersaris in Pakistan refugee camps and are purportedly traditional Ersari designs. This one looks more Yomud to me.
