A lovely peach colored rug with sections of blended colors

Some Swedish rugs are similar but different within the pattern of the rug - that is, sections of the rug may vary in color or pattern, some more than others. It's a characteristic that can be charming. It's also not for everyone, which is why it's best to look carefully for symmetry, if you're really into that.

Me, I think it's sweet, charming, and makes me wonder what was going on at the time it was being made - maybe a shortage of one or more colors? Maybe by design? Good questions, especially like this one, below, as it is long and woven very skillfully. Hmm...
