32 x 19 cm // 12" x 8" and with tassles 41cm // 16"
This cute small folded Louristan bag with tassles is done in entirely soumak technique. Essentally a square piece that has been folded. The Louristan peoples use archaic decoration which points to a long enduring culteral legacy something that has been largely overlooked - further reading Louristan bronzes and Jame's Opie's book South Persian Rugs.
Circa 1900 or 19th cent
