Oriental rugs encompass all types of rugs that are manufactured in Asia. Many Asian countries, such as China, Russia, and India, have a long tradition of weaving rugs.
Wool is the primary material that is used, but bamboo, silk, and other materials are often woven in as well to create softness and add a sense of luxury.
Persian rugs are Oriental by nature, but they are categorized separately because it is such a large industry.
All Oriental rugs, including Persian ones, use a single-loop technique that is different than the Turkish design. It creates an asymmetrical beauty – and it allows for a lot of coloring to be layered in.
Vegetable dyes are commonly used, allowing for vibrant colors – and the colors will last, so you don’t have to worry about the rugs fading over time.
