Animal print rugs - Area rug
The search and purchase of an animal print rug reflects a deep human fascination with the animal kingdom and the role and meaning that animals have had in the formation of human society.
In the antique and man-made Persian and Oriental carpet world, the weaver's depiction of animals such as the lion or the bird or the tiger or the dragon had deep mystical and symbolic meaning to early societies.
Such images as a lion and sun can be traced back through Persian history to the first and second centuries A.D. That same fascination with animals has been transposed to the world of polypropylene area rugs and synthetic dyes, where tens of thousands of square feet of animal print rug is being produced by the large mills around the world.
