A pair of sleeve cuffs from Katawaz in Ghazni province, early to mid 20th century. Measuring 36.2 x 54 cm, they are stitched in bergundy silk thread on two fine white linen cloths. The overall design is a densely arranged pattern of repeating whorl designs and curvilinear motifs, flanked by two eight-pointed stars on both ends. The embroidery technique is a tightly worked ladder stitch, a characteristic feature of the small purses from Katawaz. This textile is in very good condition but with a stain on one corner.
