Nomads in West & Central Asia have made bags of many different types over the centuries. Their small formats offered endless design opportunities for creative weavers; they are almost always very well woven & finely detailed.
Today, old tribal bags & bagfaces are becoming hard to find, but are keenly sought after as Collectors' favourites.
The Bagface is the front panel of a bag. Usually the back is worked in plain weave and at some point is discarded.
This piece is a beautiful old Persian Bagface, made by the Bakhtiari tribe. It is now suitable as a small but delightful runner. Or could equally be used as a table runner or wall hanging.
