This Luri-Bakhtiari salt bag is a graphic delight. A central cruciform element is drawn in white cotton against a deep rose madder ground, surrounded by diagonally radiating stripes in the corners. Cotton highlight add pleasing contrast throughout. Small rosettes punctuate the entirety of the field, crisply formed through weft-float substitution. The neck draws a colorful striped weft-float pattern, while the bottom is reinforced by a small section of pile.
