Constructed from various materials found in nature, some tribes would focus on skinning animals for their hides, whereas others would use reeds and plants that they would weave together into a rug. In some areas, these rugs were handed down from one generation to another, and were often the family’s most prized possession due to the work and energy it took to make one.
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.
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.
