Daily Art Fix: Old Anatolian Chuval

Anatolian Yoruk Nomadic Chuval with Soumac band

ATP-804 Old Anatolian Yoruk Chuval

A large antique Anatolian Yoruk (nomadic) chuval or çuval storage bag (opened) with stunning Yellow, Red & black Kilim skirt bands.

Rare asymmetric pattern on the central Soumac band.

Cannot wait to use all these casually created ‘swantuh sukhaaye’* artworks in my own household!
