: Dear Folks,
: The little mafrash pictured on the main page has a peculiarity that might interest some of you. The narrow white ground stripes with the red decoration (the form of the decoration is seen much more clearly on the image of the khorjin) is done as a pile decoration on a flatwoven ground, similar to many Turkmen tentbands. I've seen one other Turkmen bag with pile decoration on a white ground (I don't remember exactly when or where; probably at a dealer fair at one of the ACOR or ICOC conventions). Have any of you seen others?

Was it just like a tentband, i.e. a symmetric knot tied over three warps or simply standard pile on a white ground? In either case, I haven't seen any. Regards, Marvin
