This is a wool hat worn by men in the country, shepherds and farmers. Also handmade, you do not see handmade items like this any more here in the states.This is I believe a table cloth, although Adam thought it may be a blanket. This is also hand made. Woven in green and gold thread. It has such detail. It is pretty large, I have though about putting it on our table on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter. I would not know how to clean it it anything got on it. I could get a clear plastic table cloth to place over it. Any other ideas on how to display it?
This is also the same pattern as the above picture. But on a smaller scale. I thought it might be a place mat, but now that I look at it, it seems way too big. It might be a throw rug. I might use this as a table runner.No collection from another country would be complete without samples of their currency. The children had a lot of fun looking at these. It will be a great addition to our study when we learn about the Middle East.
