The S-design, which
extends all over these rugs in different colors, is an abstraction
of the dragon motif. The feet of the dragon are visible in
the lower part of the S, whilst a fine line in the upper part
just gives a hint of the dragon's horn. The older the rug
the easier to distinguish the dragon and the colors are lighter
and more cheerful. The characteristic of Sille rugs is that
they generally consist of two parts sewn together lengthways.
Perhaps they were used as door hangings or just because of
the available loom sizes.
