Why are oriental rugs sometimes called Persian or Turkish rugs?

By the strictest definition, Oriental rugs are carpeted hand knotted only in Asia. Iran, China, India, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Tibet, and Nepal are some of the biggest rug exporters. Persian rugs also are Oriental Carpets but they are made only in Iran (formerly known as Persia).
