Qashqa'i flatweave chanteh

I like the restrained mood of this little bag, which may also stem from the Darrehshuri, who frequently used this pattern on their weavings. I particularly enjoy the small blank sections and short horizontal lines on the edges, which disrupt the regularity of the front. Open at the sides, the bag measures 8.5" by 9.5" and was purchased at an auction in Germany.
