Initially, area rugs – as we know them today – were used for practical and protective purposes. In cold climates, they provided warmth and a comfortable and cozy bed to sleep on. In more tropical climates, they were often used for protection, from thorns, sharp rocks and even wildlife.
Since the dawn of man, area rugs have been in existence. From animal hides salvaged for warmth under the feet in cold rock caves, to palm leaves, hay, and other vegetation being used in the forests as protection from the elements, there is no doubt that area rugs have a deeply rooted history that dates back to the beginning of evolution.
Our most primitive cave drawings, scriptures, and novels showcase numerous references to these rugs. Some of the processes still used today were created thousands of years ago, and handed down through instructional writings and drawings.
