Mid century Shiraz Chanteh (bag) handwoven in South Iran.
A chanteh is a bag commonly used for small personal domestic items.
This adorable bag features a pile front and flatwoven back. The pile design is composed of a central hooked diamond with four eight-pointed stars in each corner. The flatwoven back is composed of multicolored stripes in orange, red, blue, brown, and ivory. A colorful strap woven in orange and red completes the bag.
In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. The pile is low and densely woven, and flatweave is hard-wearing.
