Geographically, oriental rugs 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, Nepal, Turkey, Iran, Caucasus, Turkic countries as Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Egypt, and Morocco. People from different cultures, countries, racial groups and religious faiths are involved in the production of all types of oriental rugs. Since many of these countries lie in an area which today is referred to as the Islamic world, oriental rugs are often also called“Islamic Carpets”, and the term“oriental rug” is used mainly for convenience. Antique looking oriental rugs can be categorized as tribal and floral designs. Nomadic tribes in these countries usually used their traditional designs and colors in geometrical forms. Floral designs were usually made in villages or cities. What it is also really interesting about the oriental rug is that all the different patterns have different meanings.
