Geometric Proggy Rug

The linen, ready to go. I'd been struggling over whether to do it as another proggy/peggy/clippy rug, or hook it, with my exotic fabrics... silks and the like... but I'm getting low on some silks and decided to use my many and sometimes hand-dyed woollen blankets. Done.
The whole point is to use up my stash, and wool I got plenty!
It's around 74 x 140cm, maybe a smidge smaller.
Here is the inspiration, although I'm not using these types of colours. I was thinking more along the lines of this amazing Kimono.
I don't know where the embroidery originated. It could be South American? If anyone knows, please let me know??
