Using saturated color, including an exceptionally pleasing green, and thick soft lustrous silky wool pile, this double saddle bag set or ‘khorjin’ is most likely the work of a Shahsevan weaver from Northwest Persia. The two bagfaces draw central hexagonal medallions incorporating arrangements of abstracted red flowers against ivory. This drawing is sometimes seen in Karadagh long rugs from the same region. A colorful flatwoven bridge between the two bags presents a diamond design more typically seen in reverse sumak bags from the Hashtrud-Miyaneh area of Northwest Persia.
