Antique Turkish Saddlebag

Be the first to review this product

1 in Stock

While exploring the remote villages of Turkey's Anatolia region, where folklore and tradition are woven into the fabric of daily life, we stumbled upon these vivid antique sacs and saddlebags. Originally part of a woman's dowry, each is colored with natural dyes and the wool is handspun on a "kirman" spindle. The intricate designs represent wishes for the future. I've transformed mine into lovely accent pillows, but they also may be used as wall hangings—adding Turkish flair to your home.

This antique saddlebag from Nigde, Turkey, features wool on cotton. The unique patterns on this bag represent different wishes; hands on hips for marriage, hooks for pulling out evil and bringing positive energy. Approximately 80 years old. This item is one-of-a-kind. 48 1/2" x 19".

This item will ship within 2-5 business days. Your product will be hand-packed with great care by our team of shipping experts using unique packaging created exclusively for The Traveler's Collection. Eco-friendly materials are used whenever possible.
