Motifs more detailed than other star lattice gendge rugs.
The checkerboard inside the diamond inside the square inside each star is unusual.
Another rare feature is the presence of the classic gendge candy stripes all over the rug - these are usually seen only in the borders.
The usage of the various colors offers a lesson in mathematics: of permutations & combinations.
Excellent example of the category Evenly thin pile with a few thinner spots. Corners have thicker pile.
Difficult to get the correct colors in photos so I have taken the pictures in different lights.
