Southern Iraqi wedding tapestry, wool on wool, 60-70 years old, 5x7 feet.
These wonderful tapestries are from a bygone era of home crafts and fine handiwork. We are lucky that some have survived in such fine condition.
This particular one is from the Beni Hassan people of southern Iraq, also known as the Marsh Arabs.
They have a loose, handmade, base fabric called a "bayeta" and then twisted braids and other materials are handsewn in patterns on top.
*Note: A tapestry is a thin flat-weave textile traditionally meant for hanging on the wall.
All sizes are approximate, specific measurements available upon request. Condition for all units is included to the best of our knowledge.
