Buying an Oriental Carpet

Rugs1“Rugs are classified by the name of the regions where they were woven,” Paige explains. “An example would be Oushaks from Turkey.” Carpets are also categorized as city rugs and tribal rugs. City rugs have more knots per inch, and therefore designs are more detailed. Tribal rugs are coarser with fewer knots, and the patterns are often geometric.
