public_access_description
The narrow upper and lower band of small squares on this bag face are usually associated with carpets and bags woven by some tribal groups in south-west Iran. The central motif is a hooked lozenge filled with carefully placed motifs and there is one cross-shaped motif in each corner but the rest of the field is scattered with tiny motifs worked wherever the weaver fancied placing them.
