1'x2' Vintage Hand knotted Yurt Tent Storage Bag


Dimension: 0.09 x1.10

The particular charm of this spindle-bag lies not only in its utilitarian purpose but also in its exquisite craftsmanship. Fashioned by the skilled hands of the Yomut Turkmen people, residing amidst the expansive Trans-Caspian Steppes of Turkmenistan, this artifact offers a glimpse into a rich cultural tapestry.

Dating back to the late 19th to early 20th century, circa 1890-1900, this spindle-bag stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Turkmen craftsmanship. Despite the passage of time, it remains remarkably well-preserved, its plain-weave ivory back serving as a canvas for the intricate artistry woven into its fabric.

Adorned with original tassels, each thread tells a story, symbolizing more than mere decoration. These tassels carry with them the hopes and aspirations of their creators, imbued with the belief in 'good luck' and prosperity. As such, they serve not only as embellishments but also as talismans, woven into the fabric of Turkmen culture.

In its excellent condition, this spindle-bag invites us to marvel at the skill and dedication of its makers while offering a window into a bygone era of Central Asian heritage. It stands as a reminder of the enduring beauty and cultural significance of the textile arts within Turkmenistan's rich tapestry of traditions.
