Question by Cardinal Rule: Difference between Persian and Oriental rugs?What are the main differences between Persian and Oriental rugs (other than where they come from, obviously), and which is generally considered to be superior?

Best answer:

Answer by yes_its_me
A Persian rug is from Iran. An Oriental rug can be from anywhere in Asia. The Persian rugs have the best quality and command the best prices. I would compare a Persian rug to a Cuban Cigar. However, as with cigars the other countries products are catching up fast.
