Antique Afghan Salt Bag
SKU : PK14-330 (N)
Weaving Type: Flat Weave
Size approx: 0.54m x 0.38m
A flat woven salt bag from Afghanistan, used for rock salt (not granulated salt as we use in the West), and made for dowry, which helps to explain the good condition. These are not really used that often, but included in the dowry and preserved for posterity. The color is quite lovely, and the colors are vibrant, clear and quite attractive.
The condition of this Salt Bag is good - no holes, no tears or repairs. The colors are all derived from natural dyes.
