A Yellow to Warm the Heart

ANTIQUE BAG FLATWEAVE

A beautiful bag with beautiful colors found in an unexpected little shop!

The back that tells the experts where this was woven. [am hoping an expert will be kind enough to enlighten me ….flatweaves have been my blindspot!]

ANTIQUE BAG FLATWEAVE

Was this made in this format? Is it a fragment that was made into a bag?The questions linger.

But the answers are not necessary to just behold the colors and feel good!

    Hi Jaina, I think this would be either Uzbek or perhaps Luri. I have seen on rugrabbit (https://rugrabbit.com/node/134431) a Luri kilim that I thought looked Uzbeki. I have a squarish bag from the Uzbeks with similar patterns. I’m no expert in the types/styles of bags made by Uzbeks (or Luris for that matter) so wouldn’t know if it’s been modified from something bigger.

    Thank you Steve. From a Facebook forum I heard that this is a Tartari Afghan bag that some attribute to Uzbeks. From the layout it looks like you are right about it having been converted from something larger. Thank you Steve!

I'd love to hear your view on this. Please comment below:
