oriental rug and carpet

An Oriental rug or carpet is a piled or flatwoven fabric hand-knotted in one of the traditional weaving areas of the Middle or Far East. Genuine Oriental rugs and carpets come from Afghanistan, China, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, Turkey, some of the southern territories of the old Soviet Union (like Azerbaijan or Armenia), Balkan countries like Romania and Albania, and some North African countries like Morocco and Egypt. A Genuine Oriental rug and carpet is not made in Belgium or anywhere else in Western Europe or in the United States.  No genuine Oriental rugs are made of nylon or polypropylene.

Oriental rug and carpet are either knotted with pile or woven without pile. Oriental rug and carpet made by machine or any method other than hand knotting or hand weaving are not considered authentic oriental rug and carpet.
