South East Caucasus, Moghan region second half 19th Century size 40 x 112 cm Called "mafrash", these large flatweaves with four sides and a kilim base were used by the Shahsavan nomads like containers for storing utensils, and they also served as cargo bags during the annual migrations to the summer pastures. Old photographs show camels carrying tall loads of mafrash containers. Mafrash lacking upper closure flaps, like this finely woven example in the sumakh technique, are usually attributed to the Moghan Shahsavan. The design of horizontal stripes, with a deep blue central band containing large hooked diamonds and two narrower white bands, has been conceived to continue along all four panels. – Very well preserved.
