Nobody knows when the first rug was woven.  The oldest existing piece dated back 2,500 years.  The knot is believed to be invented in ancient Persia (Iran).  Persian carpets are the most famous in the world.  Turkey, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and China are other suppliers.

In general, the pattern or design of a rug can be floral or geometric.  The pile of a rug can be either 100% wool, 100% silk, or a combination of the two.  Traditional colors are reds and navies.
