For the collector :) late 19th C. 1875-1900
A chuval was a bag or suitcase of sorts that hung from the walls of the nomadic tribe's tents or yurts. These beautiful bags held their belongings. This is actually what’s called the “bag face” or the hand knotted decorative front of the chuval. The backing has long been removed. This collector's piece would be perfect for hanging on the wall - a nod to its original use as a wall hanging.
This piece comes ready to hang and can also be used as a floor covering (rug). There are two small patches along the edge.
