ORIENTAL RUG INSPIRATION- It can be beautiful in any style of home
YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ORIENTAL RUG? An oriental rug is a heavy textile, and is technically, produced in “Oriental countries” . However, in the today's world most people will include Persian rugs in that category too. Thus, geographically, oriental rugs today are made in an area referred to as the “Rug Belt”, which stretches from Morocco across North Africa, the Middle East, and into Central Asia and northern India. It includes countries such as northern China, Tibet, Turkey, Iran, the Maghreb in the west, the Caucasus in the north, and India and Pakistan in the south. Oriental carpets can be pile woven or flat woven without pile, using various materials such as silk, wool, and cotton and a wide variety of colors.
