JUAN MONTOYA. First of all I look into the climate (tropical, mountain, cold, etc) before choosing material and design. Size depends on if I want the floor to show or not, but also to delineate the space.
Carpets also reflect history and culture (one could literally tour the globe and discover it‘s history by looking at carpets). Carpets can be art and should be purchased with one‘s budget in mind and the time line for that particular space.
While allowing my imagination to wander before choosing a carpet for my studio, I considered the most beautiful carpet I have ever seen (the carpet on the chapel balcony at Fontainebleau - Savonnerie(?) and inquired about the cost of such a carpet). Reality, of course, set in.
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.
