Neriz Kilim Series

Source: Fine Kilim Bridge connecting a pair of Neriz Pushti, Southwestern Iran, ca. 1890, Skinner Auction Preview, April 2019.

Pushti are small rugs or pile mats measuring no more than 2 x 3 feet. They are often used to make carrying bags. When two pushti are connected with a bridge of flat weave material, as in this case, they can be used to make saddle bags.
