Oriental rugs overview

Hand knotted oriental rugs - style and elegance for your home

Genuine hand-knotted oriental rugs are considered to be the most beautiful and best in the world. In the past they were often found in classically furnished households, but for several years now they have been especially appreciated for their originality and authenticity. With the return to genuine values, oriental rugs are also very much in vogue again today. Whether rustic, well bourgeois or modern, the rugs fit in seamlessly and give any room a pleasant, homely atmosphere. Especially a modern interior, which often turns out simple and straightforward, can thereby be given a classic rug an exotic and valuable touch.

Definition oriental rug

The variety of oriental rugs and their respective characteristics are often difficult to overview even for experts. Already with the term "Orient" it is often unclear which exact area is to be described with it. This gap is caused by different valuation approaches. While today we usually equate the Muslim countries of the Near and Middle East with the Orient, the Orient was once referred to as the Orient. With it all Asian countries south of Russia, thus also China, and the north African countries were included. The Oriental rug is also based on this older territorial definition and thus Moroccan and Chinese rugs also belong to it.

Brief information about the most important countries of origin of oriental rugs

  • Persian rugs: Persian rugs are probably the best known oriental carpets. A Persian rug is characterized by its expressive animal and floral illustrations. Due to their incredible variety, there is something for almost every taste. Exclusive Isfahan rugs, indestructible Bijar rugs and woolly Gabbeh rugs are just a few of the many Persian provenances in which high-quality rugs are knotted by hand.
  • Afghan rugs: In Afghanistan, rugs are an important part of culture and daily life. Afghan rugs are short pile, finely knotted and reddish brown in color. Despite the ongoing conflicts in the country, genuine Afghan oriental rugs are still knotted. Due to their calm character, they have found many friends around the world.
  • Turkish rugs: Hand-knotted Turkish oriental rugs have become very rare today. Well known are the small and extremely fine silk bridges from the city of Hereke. A Hereke rug can have up to 3 million knots per square meter. However, you should be careful when buying on vacation. Often imitations are sold there at unreasonable prices.
  • Indian rugs: India is where most of the world's Oriental rugs are hand-knotted today. The oriental and Muslim influence came to India in various conquests of Central Asian powers. The manufactories established at that time also brought the art of rug weaving to the country. Today, Indian tea rugs are characterized by exceptionally soft wool and a very good price.
  • Chinese rugs: The Middle Kingdom belongs to the extended definition of the Orient. Contrary to the country's widely known reputation today, Chinese rugs date back to a time when China stood for exceptional art objects. Fortunately, for the hand-knotted oriental rugs, this standard of quality has been preserved. As the country of origin of real silk, the silk rugs in particular are exceptionally beautiful and fine.
  • Pakistani rugs: In Pakistan's history, rug knotting has played a rather minor role. Today, mainly the very popular Ziegler rugs are knotted here. Here they were knotted from their original design in many new patterns. In terms of color, these are often beige and red. In exceptional cases, these rugs are also knotted with blue or green. The pile of Ziegler rugs is short and robust.
  • Moroccan rugs: The Moroccan Berber rug is probably the thickest and wooliest in the entire Orient. The feel of this rug is incredibly soft. However, you should have a separate eye on the quality of the wool, because the cheapest offer is often not the best.
  • Uzbek rugs: Oriental rugs are no longer knotted in Uzbekistan today. Once the country lay on the legendary Silk Road on which already Marco Polo traveled in the 13th century and brought us closer to the Far Eastern culture. The popular Bukhara rugs originate from today's city of Buxoro.
  • Rugs from Nepal: In the country at the roof of the world, high-pile and woolly Nepal rugs are knotted. Their colors are usually very original and natural.

What makes a hand-knotted oriental rug?

The tradition of hand-knotting rugs has a very long and ancient past. It is estimated that this originated in Central Asia about 3000 years ago and relatively quickly underwent an amazingly high professionalization. Thus, the oldest preserved rug, the so-called Pasyryk rug, was already knotted with a total of 1,300,000 symmetrical double knots, which requires a distinct knowledge of rug knotting. Even today, most oriental rugs are still knotted by hand with great dedication and attention to detail. The difference to a machine-made rug is quickly apparent even to laymen. Machine reknotted rugs are harder and processed with synthetic fibers. They also lack the natural authority and originality of a genuine hand-knotted oriental rug. In addition, the high-quality wool of a genuine hand-knotted rug ensures that the room acoustics and climate are noticeably improved. This is another property that a rug made of synthetic fibers cannot offer.
