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.
The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.
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.
