"Dorothy's Rug"


This wonderful 5' X 7' rug was made by the owner's grandmother when the owner was seven. Her grandmother was a professional seamstress who made clothes for her grandchildren as well as working to support her family. The rug is made out of old coats and some of the weaker material disintegrated over time. A 3' and a 7' section of braid was removed and replaced from salvaged material from an outside row.
