The Alphabet of the Weaving World – Rug Patterns

The art of weaving rugs reaches back to the very beginnings of our civilization. In fact, even before people settled in the first city-states, nomadic tribes had already been turning threads into fabrics and putting them to good use in many different fields of life. As soon as humans started to make objects, the art of design was born. This striving for beauty and meaning pushed skilled artisans to imbue their works with not only practical but also artistic qualities.
