Almost all of us have carpets, rugs and doormats at home or office. When you look more attentively, they are everywhere – it’s just we don’t even notice them anymore.  It may seem that it’s not even worth talking about them, however, there are some really interesting facts and cool carpet designs worth seeing.

Carpet history started a long long time ago – the oldest surviving carpet is over 2,000 years old. It was found in the 1949 in a Scythian tomb in southern Siberia where it had been preserved in ice. The origin of this carpet is attributed to either the Scythians or the Persian Achaemenids. For a long time, it was also believed that the borders of some oriental carpets were protecting those sitting within its magic confines.

Nowadays, nobody believes in magic carpets, but there are a lot of innovative, clever and even crazy carpet and doormat designs you should see! Which one do you like best?
