Antique Caucasian Sumak Shasavan bag
An Antique Caucasian Sumak Shasavan bag is a traditional bag from the Caucasus region, specifically associated with the Shasavan people. These bags are known for their intricate designs and use of the Sumak weaving technique, a type of flat-weaving that creates detailed patterns. This bag has a few damages at the border but retains a good low pile with the original kilim at the back, a type of flat tapestry-woven rug or carpet traditionally produced in countries of the former Persian Empire. The bag is noted for its wonderful colours and amazing drawing. These bags are not only functional but also hold cultural significance and are often collected as pieces of art. They can be used for a variety of purposes, including storage and transport. However, due to their age and the intricate craftsmanship, many are kept as decorative pieces. Due to their antique nature, these bags should be handled with care.
