Several camel/donkey bags accompany the carpets. Traditionally bags were woven or hooked from spun fibre to carry all the accoutrements of life for nomadic peoples as well as items for trade, for example salt, and thus they have a place of equal importance with the carpets. They often contain more than one style of rug making which gives the opportunity for some interesting mixed media creations.
