This piece was hand knotted, wool on wool warp, and is in good shape. It has a woven backing which means that it may have been used as a grain bag. The bag could be stuffed and used as a floor pillow. If you have a spoiled dog, stuff it with foam and your dog will think it is royalty!

Note on shipping on this piece: I offer free shipping on purchases over $100 in the United States. I only cover up to $20 of the shipping costs on international orders like this one and the customer pays the balance. It is very difficult to estimate how much a piece like this will cost to ship to other locations, but based on previous shipments, it will probably be over $45 to Australia or Europe. I am guessing on the shipping and if I am way off, we will have to adjust it.
