A Rug, from the latin: ‘Rogus’, is a heavy material that most people use to cover part of their floor. We’re still trying to figure out what others are doing with theirs. We say heavy “material”, not “heavy” fabric, because rugs are not all made out of fabric. Sometimes animals are slaughtered, skinned, treated, and spralled out in front of a fireplace. Lovely. Othertimes, animals aren’t hurt at all, like sheep. And when animals aren’t desired or available, there’s always nylon, polyester, acrylic, or some other synthetic yarn.
