Oriental carpets were originally woven and tufted by hand to cover the ground or floors in tents and buildings with earth or stone floors. They added warmth and color to the lives of those living in these dwellings. European castles and lesser homes often had earth or stone floors covered with things like rushes or straw and when travellers brought back rugs from the East, those who could afford them bought these carpets to enhance their homes as well. Settlers coming to America brought rugs with them, or the knowledge to make them. Soft woven or tufted flooring covers are used around the world to add comfort, color and style to homes and commercial spaces.
There are other kinds of small carpets like rag, braided, sisal, chenille and shag made of various kinds of materials like cotton, silk, leather, wool and synthetic fibers. You can get area carpets for children with games and bright children's designs on them. You can get bath mats that are washable.
Natural area rug is the place to find the best prices and great selection of carpets. They carry many types of carpets, including wool rugs, sisal rugs, plush carpets. Contemporary rugs are a favorite. I love the look of contemporary rugs that can add to your home, and are much more versatile than you may think.
