Day 17, 30 in 30 days, Bosanski cilim by Natasa Vretenar
My grandma was a weaver and she made many woven products - bags, rugs etc. The items we had that she made had mostly green, red, black, white and brown wool. Wool was from their sheep, so everything was homemade. She even hand dyed her wool in these bright colours. Details on these rugs can be quite intricate, and I always loved how designs are not perfect or exactly the same size everywhere on the rug.
This little painting is a small example of details that may be on a bosnian rug.
