A carpet weaver in Agra, India

A carpet weaver in Agra, India, leans over the loom as he weaves. He is wearing a yellow striped shirt and he kneels on the part of the rug which has already been woven. He is holding the shuttle and using it to guide the thread of the weft through the white vertical threads of the warp, which will not be visible when the rug is finished. The part that has been finished is mostly done in burgundy and earth tones, with a floral runner and borders.
