This 19th-century Kurdish Jaf bag face dates to the last quarter of the century.

Like another, complete, bag on our website (see https://www.christopherleggeorientalcarpets.com/products/view/antique-kurdish-jaf-bag/ ), it has an all over field design of concentric diamonds which are arranged in a lattice. And like a lot of Jaf bags, this weaving has beautiful, deep colours and lustrous wool. The motif of diamonds is repeated in the white-ground border enclosing the field, albeit on a small scale, but in the same colour combination as the centre.

The original brocading is intact at the bottom end and partially retained at the top end.

The bag is a genuine example of tribal weaving. It is woven in wool on a wool foundation and is in very good condition, with some corrosion in the black, which is in keeping with age.
