The use of animal skin and fur has progressed from basic clothing and shelter to sophisticated fashionable wears as well as decorations for walls, floors, doors, ceilings, and various home and office furniture. These decorations have prominent artistic and aesthetic values. Some people are familiar with the terms “mat” and “carpet”, but not “rug”. A rug is simply a decorative covering of thick material, typically not extending over the entire surface on which it is placed. When such materials consist of hide, they are called hide rugs.
