Although there are NW Persian mafrash with bordered fields, the majority are, like the one shown, essentially a series of horizontal borders. The occurrence of bordered fields in NW Persian cargo bags is not restricted to bags with undecorated side panels. Azadi and Andrews' MAFRASH shows some examples (p. 114, 222, 238, 240). Unfortunately, most mafrash are represented only by individual panels, so it's hard to know what the sides looked like. Many NW Persian salt bags are stripe designs, too.
And no way am I going near the issue of Christian and Jewish tribal arts!
