    Very fine Juval face, Turcoman, late 19th century

    This is a very finely woven panel  that has been cut away from the doubtless damaged backing that formed the original ‘juval’ or large bag that would often be part of a double unit that hung over a pack animal.

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.
