Anatolian "Grain Sack"

About

A tribal cargo bag from Southeast Turkey, flat-woven with an intricate brocaded panel in the front. Woven exclusively for domestic use, with very little change over generations, these sacks were probably the best preservers of centuries-old traditions. It would make a useful small floor rug or an interesting wall hanging. It can also be stuffed to make a large floor cushion. (The close-up pictures show the colors most accurately.)
