Oriental rug is a moniker used originally by Europeans when they became aware di and began to appreciate the art of handmade carpets in the Islamic world and beyond. Essentially, the term can be applied to rugs made in an area that rug retailers call the rug belt, which extends Carpet producing countries from North Africa, Middle Eastern countries, Central Asia, eastwards through India, Pakistan, China and Tibet.
Oriental rugs are made using techniques, materials and designs as varied as their countries of origin. They can be woven flat or with a pile using unique knotting techniques. Designs range from simplistic Moroccan and Tibetan rugs to more elaborate Persian and Turkish rugs. Sizes range from the scale of a small notebook to carpets large enough for palace ballrooms. The range of Oriental rugs is so wide and eclectic that it needs to be broken down in the different regions and in the characteristics that define the carpets produced in these regions or countries.
