Out Bagging a Carpet in Ceredigion

Another carpet; this time a real clunky, hairy one. Various opinions to its origin and its age; and none particularly flattering.

Colours out of a tin I suspect and an in-elegant but ‘not folky enough’ design to get the carpet heads interested.

It looks fine on the floor though; I like it.

Measuring a useful 4’6″ by 3’3″, it has the look of the Turk about it but I’m guessing it’s going to turnout to be “off piste”, maybe Indian.

I’m looking forward to your comments, David!
