Ornamental by design, this genre of rug was historically designed to be hung on a wall - tapestry style. We use them on the floor too, though, as they make the most particular statement in a space and get people talking (which is always a good thing)! Most often made of silk, though you will find some wool as well, these rugs are born of many different regions and in a vast array of styles. But no matter where they are from, Pictorials always tend to focus on a specific scene, quite like a painting you'd see in a museum. True works of art, indeed.
