"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. Can be used as a sturdy floor mat, or as a wall hanging; can also be stuffed to make a large floor cushion.
