Malatya Chuval Bag

Chuvals are used mainly by Turkmen nomadic tribes, and are essentially hand-woven sacks that are particularly well-known from the Auriga Turkmen. Perhaps a more appropriate appelation for chuvals given their many uses is to refer to them as “portable wardrobes” for nomadic tribes, and they’re incredible beautiful with a wide range of kilim motifs and is designed similar to their interior dwellings, or tents.
