Question:

why do russians hang rugs on the walls?

I've always wondered. Is it for insulation or confuse rodents? Please let me know. thank you

Answer:

Well some people bought very expensive, beautiful rugs to decorate their apartments, but the vast majority used rugs to keep their homes warm. Since most Russian houses are made from concrete blocks, it can get pretty cold in the winter. Now, however, most people don't have them anymore, since they've modernized their apartments. The ones that still have rugs on their walls either live somewhere in the countryside or don't have enough money to fix up their apartment.

Didn`t know this practice was limited to Russians. Are u sure ur not confusing rugs with tapestry. I`ve seen some very large, beautiful tapestry wall hangings while touring the historic mansions of Newport, RI. Wall hangings r in style today, only in smaller scale. Wish u had described the rugs in more detail and where u have seen them. Maybe they do use rugs for insulation or to block sounds in small living quarters.

I believe it is considered art work when hung on a wall, can be very stunning if design is of good taste. Dramatic effect!
