Afshar Bag Face

This handsome piece has an unusual Afshar size format. It might be from a balisht or cushion cover rather then a storage bag, and would be used as a pillow inside the tent. The pile is glossy with a lovely soft feel. It has the same flat-weave design as the spindle bag in plate 20.
