Description

When describing types of rugs, you will generally find that those made outside of a city are referred to as Tribal or Village pieces. Tribal being a broad description that covers everything made by Nomadic, Semi-Nomadic (referring to those who spent the winters in the villages and the summers in the mountains with their flocks) and Villagers.
Tribal rugs started out as survival tools, to help Nomadic and village people protect their homes, families and themselves against the harsh weather elements. They were also often given as gifts to loved ones. There was originally no intention of commercial use, these were items made for personal reasons, the details being specific to the tribe. The carpets often told tales of the connections the weavers had with their spiritual beliefs and things that were happening within their kinships.
