Oriental rugs are carpets that are created in Asia. Asia refers to the area that extends from Cyprus and Iran in the west, to Turkey, China and Vietnam in the East, to the Caucasus in the north, and to India in the south. Naturally, each of these regions has their own distinctive culture, religious traditions, and aesthetic ideals. However, each of these areas produce rugs that are referred to as Oriental (meaning ‘Eastern’) in the Western world. ‘Oriental Carpet’ is a broad and all-encompassing term that is used to describe a wealth of different rug types that can be purchased by people looking to buy rugs online in Australia. As such, there is a good amount of misunderstanding and confusion in the general population as to just what the term means.
Because this term is so broad, the distinctive types of Oriental rugs made throughout the Eastern regions are often referred to by the specific region from which they emerged. Therefore, an ‘Oriental rug’ might be a ‘Persian rug’, a ‘Central Asian rug’, a ‘Turkestanian rug’, a ‘Chinese rug’, and so forth depending on the specific region where it was made.
Thus, all Persian rugs are Oriental rugs, but not all Oriental rugs are Persian rugs!
