Bolesht Bag 1 102 x 62cms 88.00

The Belouch and other tribes including some Pashtuns, now settled in Northern Afghanistan who make Belouchi weavings, weave a rectangular bag called a Bolesht or pillow bag. They usually have a piled face and flat woven back often with bands of colour, and may be embellished with buttons, beads or cowrie shells. The fastening loops are normally made of horse hair. They are used as cushions in tents as well as in permanent dwellings.
