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 Sevda Kilim Saddle Bag is a typical piece that you would see near or on a traditional nomadic tent. The deep pockets are interlaced with a feminine inspired design of motifs meaning power and protection and finished off with contrasting pom-poms to the corners. The large built-in pouches are perfect for housing books, knick-knacks, nappies and toys or even the t.v. remote! The backside of this saddle bag is just as intense in terms of it's design and has the traditional split running down the center to show it was used over the donkey saddle bag.
