“A rug is a textile floor covering consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. The pile is generally either made from wool or fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester and usually consists of twisted tufts, which are often heat-treated to maintain their structure. The term "rug" is often used interchangeably with the term "carpet", although the term "carpet" can be applied to a floor covering that covers an entire house.”
The knotted pile carpet probably originated in the 3rd or 2nd millennium BC in West Asia, perhaps the Caspian Sea area or the Eastern Anatolia, although there is evidence of goats and sheep being sheared for wool and hair which was spun and woven as far back at the 7th millennium. These relics are what makes it possible for you to have ornate rugs and carpets that make your eyes melt.
Rugs offer amazing ways of bring life to a space and texture as well. They can be made in man-made materials as well as natural fibers and animal based fibers. The most common types of rugs are woven, tufted, knotted and flat weave. All of these rugs have there own intrinsic beauties.
