Yurt Band

These are pictures of a yurt band that was attributed to weavers in Afghanistan. Unlike the yurt band we have that is attributed to South Khygryz weavers this band included cotton in it’s construction. The white yarn is cotton. It does create a very vibrant contrast. I wonder what prompted the weaver or weavers to choose a nontraditional material on an item that is so labor intensive? I would love to find more bands to study!
