In this guide, we’re going to look at the history of rug making, what type of rugs you should consider for your home, as well as what to look for, and what to avoid. An ancient art dating back thousands of years, the area rug is one item in our home that hasn’t gone out of style.
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.
The tombs of Egypt and Mesopotamia have given us evidence that shows flat weaving was used and even pile rugs have been dated back to 2,000 BCE in Asia and the Middle East.
