"It is a fragment from either KAZAKH or KYRGYZ eagle hunter’s pants. Strong and stiff but soften up leather which has extreme fine silk chain stitch embroidery with steppe culture motifs of Siberia. Somehow, it survived as a side part of a hunter’s pants. Great saturated natural colors with small cotton ikat lower part backing."
