The Saddle Bag was used as a means of transporting baggage & possessions. It was also important  for a girl to weave a variety of bags for her dowry, so as a result they are often extremely well woven & finely detailed. Today, old tribal bags are becoming hard to find,  but are keenly sought after as Collectors items.

This bag is double-faced, meaning that both sides are different and worked in intricate detail. It is about 50 years old. It is worked in soumak technique. It is from SW Afghanistan.
