Persian Kerman saddle cover Termeh

Description

A saddle cover composed of several textile panels, . Decorated with narrow vertical stripes in varying colours, the flatwoven fabric panels were probably produced in a Kerman workshop. Openings were cut for the cantle and pommel, – Persian saddle covers are almost always either pile-woven or flatwoven in the kilim technique in a single panel. This saddle cover is a rare exception in that it is produced from ready-made materials; it may be an early example of recycling existing materials.
