44.5” x 6” (not including fringe)

Assorted fabrics; plain and printed cottons; artificial silk; jacquards; knits

Backed with plain and printed printed cottons

Cotton rag fringe (average length 7”)

Machine embroidery

Very good condition

 

This piece was probably used as an animal trapping of some kind. The movement of the rag fringe would confuse evil spirits who would fear becoming entangled in it. So it served as a protective device.

This would make a decorative hanging – or even a lively sash for belly-dancing, or just for fun.
