Among the most utilitarian (and beautiful) textiles found in Central Asian homes were bags. Every one of them – from large storage and transport bags to small embroidered bags such as this – had a purpose. The woman who embroidered this bag no doubt had a specific use in mind – perhaps it held personal objects, or small household items.
A nice little bag with a light-colored spiraling sun motif on one side mirrored by a dark sun on the other side.
