Ottoman eastern provinces, eastern Anatolia, most probably early 20th century. Hand woven wool saddle bag (so-called "heybe" in Turkish) in colorful design, typical for nomadic pastoral tribes. Such textiles from hand spun wool were being used on horses and mules, when moving with a few personal items, foods etc. to new grazing areas. When setting encampment for longer time, such bags were typically hanged inside tents as "nomadic shelves". Very nice undamaged example with extensive traces of use, no holes or loss of any parts.
MEASURES: 142 x 49 cm (cca 4 ft. 4 in. x 20 inches).
