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.
Sofas always look better on a rug rather than off or worst still half on and half off. A good modern 10x8 rug should cost you between $7,000 to $10,000 depending on the silk or wool content. A fine antique rug of that size however can cost in excess of $50,000.
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.
