Each of the six compartments on the field of this rather course and crudely
woven small soumak bag contain a hook-outlined design with a centrally placed
eight-pointed star. The idol-like crosses on the white main border are very
unusual and original but the rest of the design lacks the sophistication present
in the other illustrated examples. It is charming but speech-less and does not
nearly compare to the anthropomorphic crosses shuffling across the borders!
