A brief history of rugs.

Carpets are one of the oldest forms of art and craft in the world. They are believed to have originated in Central Asia over 5,000 years ago, and have been used for centuries to provide warmth, comfort and beauty.

The first rugs were made by hand, and were woven with wool, cotton or camel hair. The designs were simple, but often included geometric or animal motifs. Over time, the designs became more complex, and floral motifs, landscapes and human figures were incorporated.

Rugs were originally used as sleeping mats, but soon became a form of art and decoration. They were used to cover the floors of houses, temples and palaces. Rugs were also used as gifts, and were considered a symbol of wealth and status.

In the 15th century, Persian rugs became very popular in Europe. They were imported in large quantities, and were considered one of the best rugs in the world. Persian rugs were characterized by their intricate designs and vibrant colors.
