Rug weaving is an ancient art that reached its pinnacle with the hand-loomed Oriental and Persian rugs of 16th-century in Asia, Persia, and Turkey. By the end of the 18th century the English and French rug designers were creating innovative styles and textures. The impressive European rugs were woven by hand until 1840’s, when Erastus Bigelow introduced the power loom. While many traditional rugs are still hand woven, most contemporary rug producers utilize modern machinery and equipment.
