Coming from Persia, Polo travelled from Sivas to Kayseri.

Abu'l-Fida, citing Ibn Sa'id al-Maghribi refers to carpet export from Anatolian cities in the lte 13th century: “That's where Turkoman carpets are made, which are exported to all other countries”.

Geographically, oriental rugs are made in an area referred to as the “Rug Belt”, which stretches from Morocco across North Africa, the Middle East, and into Central Asia and northern India.

It includes countries such as northern China, Tibet, Turkey, Iran, the Maghreb in the west, the Caucasus in the north, and India and Pakistan in the south.

An oriental rug is a heavy textile, made for a wide variety of utilitarian and symbolic purpose, produced in “Oriental countries” for home use, local sale, and export.

Oriental carpets can be pile woven or flat woven without pile, using various materials such as silk, wool, and cotton.

Woven rugs probably developed from earlier floor coverings, made of felt, or a technique known as “extra-weft wrapping”.

Flat-woven rugs are made by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave to produce a flat surface with no pile.

Carpet fragments dated to the third or fourth century BC were excavated from burial mounds at Bashadar in the Ongudai District, Altai Republic, Russia by S. They show a fine weave of about 4650 asymmetrical knots per square decimeter dated to the first centuries AD.
