Scandinavian rugs are so universal that they appear in almost every culture in the world. From Turkey to Peru, everyone can enjoy their beautiful patterns and stunning colors. Among oriental, flat woven vintage rugs are well known kilim rugs as well as soumaks, although Scandinavian pieces are one of the most popular carpets of this weave. What is characteristic for all types of flat woven antique rugs and carpets is the fact that loom is necessary to make them. They are created by interlocking warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads. Because of that, flat woven have no pile whatsoever and tend to be thinner than knotted rugs. Their versatility makes them useful in many situations- flat woven rugs have been used for centuries not only as flooring, but also wall hangings, and saddle pads.
