The last in a series of hand-made rugs by Martin’s 97-year-old mother. In this one, the outer braid, and one near the center, are clearly visible, as they are of different colors than most of the rug. For more information on these rugs, see the other photos in the “rugs by Martin’s mother” set.

At the larger sizes, you can distinguish the different braids better. They have been woven end-to-end, and adjacent braids have been interwoven, so that the rug doesn’t fall apart. There are six cloth strips in each braid.

I confess — I got rid of some miscellaneous furniture by cloning the carpet over it.
