Luri Bakhtiari bags are known for their distinctive integration of sumak and other flatweave techniques. This Luri Bakhtiari ‘khorjin’ double saddle bag makes use of two bagfaces woven in sumak technique. Both the colorful fasteners as well as the back are executed in kilim while thin bands of pile are worked into the bottom of each bag adding strength to them as well as a visual flair. Networks of abstracted trees are traced against the indigo grounds of each bagface. Highlights in white cotton add contrast.
