“Chanteh” are small bags woven by women in which they would keep their personal effects of any value, ie. small jewelry items, silver/gold, etc. The design seen here is obviously unusual, very atypical to see a true human form as precisely articulated as we see here.

To say from where it comes with any precision is really difficult, as the Shahsevan inhabited areas of nw Persia, Azerbaijan and the Caucasus, with little variation in weaving style or technique between the people of those areas.

The condition is very good, with no holes, repair or re-weave and the colors are all derived from natural dyes
