About Oriental Rugs
It is not uncommon for consumers to refer to Oriental rugs and Persian rugs as if they are the same. If you are in the market for one of these rugs, it is important to understand that one comes from Iran (formerly Persia), while the other comes from the Orient (Asia). A vintage Oriental rug is a small carpet knotted by hand decades ago in one of the Asian countries, typically Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Nepal, or Tibet. A silk Oriental rug features Asian art in either neutral or vibrant colors. All the different rug styles come with or without fringe in virtually any size. An impressive inventory of Oriental rugs is available through the reputable sellers on eBay. With just a little effort, you can find a rug that features gorgeous Asian style in your favorite color scheme and in the right size for your living space.
