This is one of the hand braided rugs that I rescued from grandma Smedley's house. I gave the other one to my sister.
I wish I knew more about them, like when they were made.
Grandma used to have a huge braided rug that was very colorful sitting underneath the big claw footed wooden dining table in the kitchen. I loved that rug. I wonder what happened to it. Come to think of it, I don't even know what happened to the big table.
