Floor rugs were already in use in ancient times, as shown by fragments of flat woven rugs found in ancient tombs of Egyptians and Mesopotamians. The history of floor rugs even go farther back than that, specifically to around 2,000 BC ago, when Middle Eastern and some Asians use rugs. Using wool from their sheep, the first group to make rugs in large quantity was the nomads from Asia. Many considered Persian rug making an art form in itself because of their beautiful, intricate patterns and designs.
