Oriental Rugs

Since the High Middle Ages, oriental rugs played an integral part of their cultures of origin, as well as of the European and, later on, the North American culture. Oriental carpets are woven using various materials such as silk, wool, and cotton and can be pile woven or flat woven without pile. Jewish Torah ark covers (parochet), floor coverings, Islamic prayer rugs (sajjadah), Christian altar covers and decorations for animals are some of the examples for oriental carpets with sizes from pillow to large and room-sized carpets.
