Rug enthusiasts, or "Rug-a-nistas," those rare people who enjoy having extended chats about high-end wool rugs, are the types of friends we enjoy seeing on a regular basis. We discuss knot counts. We talk about historic rug themes that have been passed down through the centuries. We are awestruck by the wide range of natural dye hues utilized by artists to tint their wool. However, every now and again, we make the mistake of referring to Persian and Oriental rugs as interchangeable terms. In actuality, there is a significant difference between Oriental and Persian rugs. Oriental and Persian rugs are both stunning and distinctive in their own right.

What’s the difference between Oriental and Persian Rugs

The key differences

It might be difficult to tell the difference between Oriental and Persian rugs. They are the most precious and sought-after rugs in the world due to their ancient and detailed designs, natural wool fibers, durability, and painstaking workmanship. The value of both types of rugs rises with time. Above all, both types of carpets are handcrafted, making them one-of-a-kind treasures that will bring delight and beauty to your home for decades.

The key differences

Country of Origin

The country in which Oriental and Persian rugs are made is one of the differences between them. The Persian rug dates back thousands of years to the old Persian Empire. Despite the fact that Persia's boundaries have shifted constantly over the years, Persian rugs are most generally made in Iran. Pakistan's indigenous weavers also produce tribal Persian rugs. The countries of China, Turkey, Tibet, India, and Egypt produce the majority of authentic Oriental rugs.

Country of Origin


The sort of knot used to manufacture the rug is another distinction between Oriental and Persian rugs. On looms, true Oriental and Persian rugs are hand-knotted. Ghiordes knots are symmetrical knots used to tie Oriental rugs. This knot can be seen in hand-knotted rugs from Turkey and Iran's Kurdish regions. The most common knot used in Persian rugs is the asymmetrical or Senneh knot. Iran, Pakistan, India, China, and Egypt are among the countries that have spent thousands of years trying various types of knots. Senneh knotted rugs are typically more symmetrical and exact.



Hand cleaning a rug is an ancient and customary practice that distinguishes Oriental and Persian rugs. The fact that Persian rugs are customarily hand-washed is one of the reasons why they are regarded to be the softest in the world. Pakistan carpets are in high demand because of their natural colors and washing method. Collectors frequently choose Pakistan's indigenous weavers when considering a long-term investment. In the last decade, several really intriguing village rugs from Pakistan have begun to appear, created with vegetable colors and hand-spun natural wool.
