Coconut carpet

All photos are copyrighted by Gary Retterbush. Please do not use any of these photos without written permission.
This small factory in my tiny village is one of the last old fashioned coconut carpet factories in the world. Just keeping the old looms up and running is an art. They make the "Red Carpet" for many famous places and people around the world. The red carpet in this series is for the Pope's visit to Germany.
