Shah savan, NW Iran

Mafrash, 1910-1920s


1.1 m by 1.3 m

Old , Mafrash panel . Originally it would have formed one side of a bag used for transporting bedding.

These pieces have really subtle, natural dye colours and traditional designs passed down from mother to daughter over many centuries. Exquisite pieces of tribal history which are now no longer being woven.

Made in slit tapestry weave.
