Product Description

Old Bolivian saddle bags woven in one piece
These double saddle bags are handwoven on an Andean loom. Sometimes they are made in pairs and joined by handwoven straps. Others are woven on an Andean ground loom in one long panel, which is then folded and sewn along the edges to form a double-ended bag like this one. The local name is alforjas. The first two photos show both sides of the bags. The total bag measures approximately 14.5 x 37 inches. All edges are finished with a very nice tubular edging. I believe they were made before 1960, so they are at least 45 years old.

Condition is Very Good, some wear and slight soil / stains from use. I do not see any holes or repairs. Overall quite nice and very hard to find as a complete pair. The 2 button closures are slightly different.
