56- Flokja Plain

Description:This flokja carpet is a vibrant orange yarn with heavy pile used for sitting and sleeping, as well as a bed cover. A few minor holes on the reverse that are not visible and do not need to be repaired. It was made in two panels and the reverse is noteworthy as it clearly shows the construction of the piece. This was for domestic use, not for sale outside the family. This is clear on the reverse which utilized whatever extra yarn was present to construct the parts not visible when in use.
