I purchased this rug in 1972 from an individual that I know that ran an antique and gardening shop. That same year she purchased a trunk of old rugs
from a friend. The friend had inherited an estate from his uncle in New Mexico. The rug seemed to be very old then.
I would lke some suggestions on how to make this rug into a walk hanging without damageing it. The rug is 25" by 56".
Thanks

Patsy,, what a lovely rug,,, not knowing what the material is or how thick.. but is it possible to hand stitch on a "casing" so you can run a curtain rod through it?
or
using fabric glue you could 'glue' on Tabs near the top to run a rod through.

My thought was adding tabs and running a dowel.

I would recommend keeping it flat on a table and away from strong light. It's beautiful!

I agree with Nora...I would run a dowel through the top and use it as a wall hanging myself. But also as Bonnie said it would make a Nice Table Scarf.

Very Pretty...I don't think I would want it covered up by other items.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy
