rug Any loom or fabric, used to cover different surfaces. The term is also used to name tablecloths and fabrics to cover walls,since carpets were not commonly used on the floor in European interiors until the 18th century .
While some people use the words carpet and blanket interchangeably,some argue that the main difference between them is size,with the former being larger than the latter.Others use the term carpet exclusively for floors and blankets for beds and home.For clarity, some textile scholars also distinguish between carpets and carpeting.With carpeting they refer to surfaces covered in a fixed manner,while the rugs are not fixed, that is to say they are folding and fulfill an exclusively decorative function.
Decades of creation
The procedure used in the manufacture of carpets has not changed for centuries,being the same for the nomads as for the factories,it only varies in the fact that the looms used by the nomads are much less precise than those used in the workshops.
This is due to the fact that the nomads are people in continuous movement,for which they need easy transport materials.The nomadic loom is horizontal and consists of only two wooden slats placed in parallel and fastened to the ground by pins.The roller of this loom remains motionless,being the weavers in charge of moving to be able to knit, by means of knots, the entire carpet. As a general rule, these looms are narrow,which generates rectangular carpets of small size.In contrast, the loom of the workshops is available vertically and is much more precise giving rise to larger carpets.
