The term “Oriental” refers to rugs coming from Asia.
Iran, China, India, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal are 
some of the biggest exporters of Oriental rugs.

The term “Persian” is reserved for those carpets made in Iran, formerly known as Persia.

There are ten basic rug types.  
Hand knotted rugs, dhurrie, kilim, chain-stitch, soumac, needlepoint,
 hand tufted, rag rugs, machine made and wall-to-wall.
