Don’t know much about the rug as it was being thrown away but a mate thought it was quite valuable as the stitching is very inconsistent so probably done by hand. It’s quite worn at the edges, very frayed and has some stains on it. I’m more interested in a ball park figure, or if you can tell me based on the design where it might be from (or even when...), it is 10”10 x 8”3. Not sure of the mAterial, seems like thick cotton but I have no clue about this sort of thing
