Dear Wendel,

I post here a picture from Eagleton's Kurdish book, plate 78.
Size: 18 x 18"

Comments of William Eagleton: The kilim is a warp faced "cicim" or "jijim" type with 3 strips of warp float designů.

It has been purchased in Uludere on the road between Cizre and Hakkari in the rugged Hakkari mountains North of the Iraki border. This is the realm of the Goyan tribe which was in the past a part of the Hartushi confederation.

Such bags, all similar in colour and construction, are a part of the female apparel and are used as large purses or shopping bags and perhaps even to carry babies.

Best wishes and many thanks for this interesting topic but it seems that very few of us can answer to your questions.
