Marla Mallett on Why Sennehs Feel Like Sandpaper

Dear folks -

Marla Mallett sends the following message about why the back of Senneh pile rugs feel like sandpaper.
Hi John,

I just now took a very quick look at your Jerry Thompson thread...

I did see the comments on the Senneh rug...There were remarks about WHY that weave is so rough and "sandpapery."

A while back wrote a short piece about this on my website "Woven Structures Update" section:

You might take a look at that, if you're interested.

All the best,

Marla's treatment of the Senneh weave is five or six items down in this third section of the Woven Structures Update. Look for "A Distinctive Senneh Weave."

Thanks, Marla

R. John Howe
