Turkish nomads have been using saddle bags for generations as a way to transport certain goods on the back of their donkey. Nowadays Saddle Bags are the new home accessory for the armchair, couch, baby cot or even bed head - just to name a few!
The Clara Kilim Saddle Bag is a sweet addition to your home decor. This saddle bag has been cut from the same vintage kilim as the Clara Saddle Bag in Mint but the colour palette is slightly different due to the more navy and red dominance! Both pockets are 30cm in depth and width, with the total saddle bag length measuring in at 90cm it's the perfect size for a standard sized armchair or crib. The edges are finished with a blanket stitch from handspun, organically dyed, anatolian wool in a navy blue colour. The same wool is used for the soft pom-poms that adorn all four corners of this saddle bag. The vintage kilim that this saddle bag was cut from is estimated to be 40 years in age due to the toning in the yarn and style of embroidery found.
This saddle bag also comes with mint stitching.
