I picked up this large textile bag today. I think it is African, but maybe from India? It's beautiful and definitely old, but i'd love to learn more about it. It's about 27 Inches long by 17 inches wide.
I posted it on the Ethnic Textiles Group on FB and got loads and loads of feedback about this piece. Apparently it's very rare / unusual and of very high quality - approx 100 yrs old. There are very few of these market bags and this one is in very good condition. Many people pm'd me and offered me a fair amount for this although i want to keep it. A museum in India also contacted me about it.
