Keywords to Use When Searching for Large Vintage Rugs

I wanted to share some of my go-to keywords or search terms for scoring the BIG ones with deep discounts from places like Ebay and Etsy.

Eventually you’ll catch on to what each keyword means and looks like. They’re typically associated with a specific rug style or origin.


Vintage vs Antique Rugs

Antique refers to 100 years or more, vintage is older (20+ years old), and you never know what you’ll get using “old” as your age defining keyword.

Carpet vs Rug Search Term

You can also leave off carpet and / or rug entirely for an even wider search result… just be prepared to sort or filter.
