What does this mean?

Dear Libby,
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Your rug is an Indian Dhurrie, which means that it is a flatwoven rug, and it is made out of cotton. It appears to be in good condition and would most likely date from the second quarter of the 20th century. Dhurrie style rugs are traditionally woven in pit looms, where the use of pedals is incorporated in the weaving process. The decoration in the center field of your rug is meant to represent a type of paradise. Based on recent price realization, a fair market estimate for your rug would be between 100 and 300 US dollars.
Thanks,
Morgan
