Floral Embroidered Saye Gosha from Afghanistan
A Saye Gosha from Afghanistan covered with floral embroidery.
Saye Gosha are used by Central Asian nomads to identify an individual's bedding when its stacked inside the tent. Although it was bought in Afghanistan it's attributed to the nomadic Lakai Uzbek tribe.
Saye Gosha can be used as an unusual wallhanging or to decorate the backs of chairs or sofas. The faded purple threads would have been dyed with a dye made from onion skins.
