    Khorgeen, E.Turkey,  c1900

    An old ( late 19th or early 20th century) saddle bag woven in Eastern Turkey with colours rather typical of the region – deep purple and red. The various holes and roughly repaired splits (reflected in the very reasonable price) are proof of a long life on the hoof.

Product Description

Life for many tribes around the world who depend on animals to subsist has often been a well of textile creativity, spurred on by a kind of joyful competitive spirit, not unlike the urge in some quarters to buy the latest model of a car! Being portable and fit for any of the many needs of their life, produced an amazing variety of bags and trappings, always expressing family, tribal, and regional pride.
