Is there a special name for a visual border on an area rug?

RE: name for rug border
Here are a few things I know about the anatomy of rugs.
some of the rugs that have a central focus have contoured areas at the four right angles of the field adjacent to the borders. this is called the spandrel or the corners.
there are narrow stripes , either plain or patterned, within the border arrangement, that are often indistinguishable from the minor borders. these are called the guard strips

Hi

ONLY UNBLEACHED HAND-SPUN WOOL FROM THE HIGH MOUNTAIN

OF AFGHANISTAN IS USED TO MAKE OUR CAMAS RUGS.

IT COMES FROM OUR OWN SHEEP AND IS MINIMALLY PROCESSED

FROM START TO FINISH TO PROVIDE THE MOST ORGANIC,

SUSTAINABLE, AND BEAUTIFULLY SOFT WOOL WHICH

THE FOUNDATION AND SOUL OF OUR GREAT RUGS.

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, NATURAL VEGETAL DYES HAVE PROVIDED

THE SOURCE OF COLOR FOR THE WORLD'S GREATEST WEAVINGS.

WE ARE CONTINUING THIS LINEAGE WITH CARE.

CENTRAL ASIAN TRIBAL WEAVERS HAVE MADE SOME OF

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER RUGS IN HISTORY.

OUR WEAVERS CONTINUE THIS ANCIENT TRADITION.

RE: orientalrugsmart
Hi everybody,

I just read a very interesting post on your website's bog.

It was on the history of area rugs. i was wondering if folks

here would be interested in a discussion on this topic.

I suggest each member post on a single incident or historical fact,

and the others either follow that up, or comment on it.

 Hi,

Did you know that  the carpet industry  in the USA emerged in the eighteenth century ? it rose with the setting up of manuficaturining plant by a man named Alexander smith in 1845in west Farms, New Yourk. Douring World War I, the carpet looms in the USA were convertedto make tent duck and nevy blanket to support the countery in war time.
