This small Afshar double bag set draws a deep indigo octagon against a contrasting rose colored ground. The octagon is punctuated by a simple but highly graphic checkerboard design, a variant of which is formed in the corner pieces. Small bags like this were carried several ways, and were often attached to belts by village and nomadic women. 1.
