Afghan Carpet Bag

This knotted-pile carpet bag from Afghanistan is probably of Baluch workmanship. The sombre colours, typical of Baluch textiles, are punctuated by a bright orange, geometrically rendered leaf-and-calyx border motif; a central design features four large berekets, also shaped geometrically. The bereket is thought to be a combination of the elibelinde and ram's horn motifs, thus uniting male and female fertility.
