Perfect for the floor or as a wall hanging or over a cheat or small table .Chuval is the name given to a nomadic grain sack . This piece would have been made for a young womans marriage dowry and used to store grain or other household items inside of her tent .Malatya is a town in the east of Turkey with a large population of Kurds as the use of the brilliant colours with the natural undyed sheeps wool is an indication of its nomadic kurdish origin .Its very unusual to have the design just in the centre and in a sumak woven relief technique.
