Beshir Chuval 202x110cms

6945

The shores of the Amu Darya, Northern Afghanistan

Approx. 80 years old. Good condition.

Identical in technique to that used for carpet weaving, a Chuval is a type of deep storage bag. Suspended from the trellislike structure of a Turkmen yurt interior, it served to hold the most precious family belongings— somewhat akin to a wardrobe, but eminently more portable.

This Chuval is without the plain back, and ready for your floor.
