of the most well known tribes of Iran are the Luri. They inhabit the
Southwestern portion of the country, and are of Persian origin. Most
Luri tribals are designed similarly to the Qasgai, but use dramatically
different motifs and tend to use vivid colors which contrast sharply.
Luri Tribal Bag no.
A fascinating little
piece of tribal textile work(11"X31"), this is a very authentic saddlebag.
Yes, that's right a piece from what some of my more skeptical friends
have deemed, my jackass accessory collection.
All quips aside, if you're into antique tribal artiwork, this flatweave
is an interesting piece. This is the more simple of the two bags I still
have, but the amount of effort that goes into making this functional
part of life, is admirable. It works great as a wall hanging, particularly
over a doorway, which is where it lives in my house. It has one flaw,
a hold in the back of the bag, that can be seen in the second picture.
