Khamseh small bag with boteh

Here is another small bag that was once half of a double. I really like the dramatic contrast between the rather fussy treatment of the boteh and the coarse horizontal chevrons (typical of one of the Khamseh tribes) on the kilim back. It measures 12" by 13" and was acquired from a dealer in England. The small Afshar boteh bag that was posted earlier provides an interesting contrast.
