This is the greatest "retro", Bohemian, straight from the 70s!
The rug (wall hanging as seen in pics is also a possibility) is anywhere from 50 to 54 years old. Considering it's age, and condition, I am guessing it was either on a wall or used where there was very little traffic.
Because it's a very unique "style" in which it was woven, it adds even more rarity or HTF qualities to it.
The backing, or base, is the same as a latch and hook rug would be created on. ( A Huge Piece!!). However, instead of "standing yarn" plush texture, like a latch/hook kit, the yarn was woven, over and over each square, making a flat rug texture in a Chevron pattern. The iconic 70s colors were used (harvest yellow, burnt orange, dk green, brown, tan..) these colors were left on all four sides, leaving a fringe that's 2.5" long.
The entire piece measures 73" long by 61" wide. There are No stains, even flipped over, the back is not stained, no water marks etc. There are 2 places that appear to have been tightly sewn together, possibly small holes. These can only be seen very up close and if you're searching for them. I'm sure a cleaning would brighten it up, but I know it cannot fit and should not be machine washed
** I couldn't find exact matches to price compare, but the last 2 pic collages are others for sale currently (some small, some not vintage)**
