This heirloom was made by Inez in Gilbertsville, N.Y. in the early 1960's. As did most braiders then, she made several braided rugs by cutting up old woolen coats, blankets, etc. When Inez moved into an assisted living facility, the rug came to her son who remembers her on the floor working on the rug. When he said he would like to have the rug restored and put in a place of honor in his living room, I was truly touched. So I did so! The outside row was removed, 7 outside rows were opened up and totally relaced with the last row butted to form a continuous cirle and no sign of a taper. It is a pleasure to know it is in a "place of honor" in her son's living room.
