An authentic Oriental rug is a handmade carpet that is either knotted with pile or woven without pile. Oriental-design rugs are made by machine or any method other than hand knotting or hand weaving are not considered authentic Oriental rugs.
These rugs normally come from a broad geographical region extending from China in the East to Turkey and Iran in the West and the Caucasus in the North to India in the South. People from different cultures, countries, racial groups and religious faiths are involved in the production of oriental rugs.
Oriental rugs are organized by origin: Persian rugs, Anatolian rugs, Kurdish rugs, Caucasian rugs, Central Asian rugs, Turkestan rugs, Chinese rugs, and Tibetan rugs.
