Chinese Baotou Suiyan saddle rug (130 x 53cm)


130 x 53 cm  //  4ft 6" x 2ft 1"

This indigo indigo saddle rug is ingeniously woven in two directional form from the centre. A practice known amongst saddle covers to facilitate smooth use and deflecting the weather. The region Baotou -Suiyan is east of Beijing and is responsive to the Inner Mongolian market which this was probably intended. There is a patch which has been expertly repaired and practically invisible otherwise the saddle rug is in excellent condition.
