Square Rugs

This rug shape is rather unusual for a hand knotted rug. Most  hand made rugs are retangular, being made historically for tent doorways and entrances. Also with nomadic tribes, they had to carry carpets to market, so a rolled rug could not be as wide as it was long. There is however, demand for this shape in modern interiors as an excellent style under tables and for creating conversation areas and focal points.
