Carpet design patterns mostly related to specific contracts, though only a few specify contract details. Patterns include those for contracts in, for example, Robbins Bros New York, Charles of Portugal Shoe Shops and the New York Plaza Palm Court. Some patterns consist of several seperate pieces of paper and have therefore been catalogued as single items with multiple parts. Where items are folded and stapled or clipped together the size recorded is that when folded. Some have been given a design number, while a few also note contract details and some are dated.
