What is the difference between a rug and a carpet?

Size matters. Carpets are larger, mostly wall to wall, and usually tacked, glued or taped down.

Why is a rug called a rug?

The term rug was first used in English in the 1550s, with the meaning ‘coarse fabric’. The term is of Scandinavian origin, comparable to Norwegian rugga ‘coarse coverlet’, from Old Norse rogg ‘shaggy tuft’, from Proto-Germanic *rawwa.

The history of the rug:

Original rug patterns included pictures of gods, goddesses, animals, pointed stars, crescents and other shapes used to depict memories, capture history and tell stories. Cultures around the world have contributed to this textile art and traders spread the styles around the globe.

Archeologists uncovered evidence of rugs in ancient tombs. Preserved by permafrost and the accidental preserving additive used in the paint/dye, the oldest known surviving rug was found in ancient Persia and dates back to 500 BC. Check out the Pazyryk Carpet…
