    Unusual slightly abstract effect appears in the way the pattern (in wool) is formed over a white base (in cotton). The technique is known as sumak – which appears like embroidery but is formed as the piece is woven. The back shows more typically the strong colours of Veramin of Central Persia.

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.
