Distinguished by a pattern I haven’t encountered anywhere else, this curious half of a saddlebag has the further peculiarity of having ivory cotton wefts with the exception of a very small area (of about 5 cm) where the wefts are in beige wool. Very finely knotted (255 kpsi) with silky wool, it shows a rich palette consisting of ten colours. A mystery piece that is quite difficult to attribute to a specific tribe.
