44.5” x 6” (not including fringe)

Backed with plain and printed printed cottons
Cotton rag fringe (average length 7”)
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.
