This rug was purchased at a garage sale many years ago and I was told it was most likely Navajo?? Honestly, I do not know anything about rugs but I thought the pattern and colors were beautiful so I purchased it. This rug has just been in storage since purchased. There are not any holes or stains. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of wear and tear on it either. The dimensions are roughly 7ft long x 4ft wide.
A Persian rug indeed inspired by Indian motives, I saw some before. This rug is machine made and not hand knotted unfortunately. I think its made in the second half of 20th century. The backside sometimes reveals makers sticker or patch. If so please send me a picture to narrow down the factory were it was made. Persian means that it also can be made in Turkey. Persian rugs were originated in the old Persian empire were Turkey was a part of. It is known that recent made Turk rugs are called also Persian. It has bright colors and is indeed very decorative. The hand knotted one's are the more expensive one's.
