Collectible Old Afghani Tribal Pashtun Embroidered Bib

This old Pashtun Tribal Embroidered Baby's Bib was hand embroidered in Afghanistan in the early to mid-1900s. The complex designs hold great personal and cultural significance to the embroiderer and her clan. 

Repeating geometric shapes, stylized flourishes, and animal motifs of a rooster and rams’ horns promise an abundant life and protection against harm.

The warm pomegranate color of the base fabric was traditionally used by the Patika Pashtun tribe from the Afghan Ghazni Province.

This is a meticulously embroidered old Afghan Tribal baby's bib in excellent condition - wearable and collectible.
