Natural brown base, terracotta for the soumak part, with ochre, white, green and blue-green details
This is a semi-antique Shahsavan mafrash side panel. It was a transport bag (now open), maybe used as a cradle. The main part is in plain weave and
both sides are in soumak. All natural colours and in good condition. This extremely refined textile shows us all the sophistication that the nomadic people use to put into daily objects.
