Beginning of the great history
The history of carpets dates back thousands of years, with evidence of carpets and rugs found in ancient civilisations such as Persia, Egypt, and China. The earliest known carpet, called the Pazyryk carpet, was discovered in a tomb in Siberia and dates back to the 5th century BCE.
In ancient times, carpets were primarily used for practical purposes such as providing warmth and insulation, as well as for religious and cultural ceremonies. The weaving of carpets was often a family or community activity, with techniques and designs passed down from generation to generation.
Today, carpets are widely used in homes and businesses around the world, and continue to evolve and adapt to changing styles and trends. From traditional hand-woven rugs to modern machine-made carpets, there is a wide range of options available to suit any taste and budget.
Lotto Carpets Gallery– More than Just a Floor Covering
Lotto Carpets Gallery has made the carpet more accessible and relevant to the modern times. Leading by example, we have used carpets in philanthropic endeavors, learning tools, and as part of our celebrations
Lotto carpets Gallery has held a number of charity auctions that have set out to benefit a wide variety of people. We have donated 50% of our profits to the charities we hosted the auctions for culminating in over $500,000 dollars in total charity since we began.
We believe that carpets hold a wealth of information within their warps and wefts. As a family and experts in the field, we take it as our responsibility to not only showcase but to educate our clients and friends about this timeless art form. We have done so in a number of different ways including teaching children how to appreciate carpets as well as demonstrating washing techniques and helping others identify and learn about different weaves, materials and finesse
Carpets have always been a part of our lives including celebrating a number of our milestones. We have included carpets in welcoming guests as well as celebrating festivals. They have not only added color and culture to our celebrations but they have also been amazing topics of conversation and sharing
