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 is an old double-faced Balouch bag from SW Afghanistan. Both sides are quite diferent, both are worked in intricate detail. A very interesting old bag.
