In Reply to: 19th c. rug revolution? posted by Steve Price on March 02, 1999 at 07:23:10:
: Dear Erol,
: The closest things to revolutions in rugs in the second half of the 19th century are the growth of commercialization in tribal and rustic weaving and the introduction of synthetic dyes. I'm not sure whether I'd call these revolutions, although that would be a defensible position.
: Was this what you had in mind, or is there something I'm missing?
I am sorry I misunderstood what you meant by your that words. "Let's take the Darwinian revolution that occurred in what ruggies would call the third quarter of the 19th century..."
I thought you meant there was a "Darwinian-like (natural selectional revolution" in the rug, particularly in the oriental rug, business in the 3rd quarter of 19 th century. I made comments on this misunderstanding.
Thanks for your paitence and additional information.
