Persian Garden Crossbody Phone Purse

Regular price $72.00

The eye-catching motif on this crossbody phone purse is borrowed from a spectacular garden carpet (second half of the 18th century) in The Met collection. Depictions of Persian gardens on carpets typically combine a bird's-eye view of a classic four-part garden, or chahar bagh, with a profile of birds and trees. This particular carpet, made by Kurdish weavers in Iran, bears the traditional pattern of a garden enclosure divided into rectangular plots, with water in canals suggested by parallel stripes.
