      It's a kilim, from the Middle East, Turkey, or Central Asia. Navajo rugs are identified not by their design, but by the way they are woven. Because the Navajo use a unique type of loom and weaving technique, they will never be woven with fringe on both ends.

      I match the color and pattern to a mexico rug maker chimayo
    3. CanyonRoad, 3 years ago
      Chimayo rugs are not Mexican. They are part of the Colonial Art heritage of northern New Mexico. The weavers are descendants of the Spanish settlers who came from Spain in the 1600s. Not Native American, not Mexican, but Hispanic.

      However, this is not a Chimayo rug.

      By design I think it's Zapotec, from Oaxaca in Mexico.
      Zapotec rugs have fringes

      Zapotec rugs have fringes, but so does every other hand woven rug in the world...except for Navajo rugs. The only thing woven fringe on both ends proves is that it eliminates the possibility of it being Navajo or Native American.

      The most important thing to consider when trying to identify the source, is not the design, or the colors, or pattern...but the kind of loom used, the particular weaving technique, and the materials used.

      The fringe, for example, can be tied off differently, it can be hidden in a hem, or bound off. In this case, this is not the way a Zapotec fringe is done. They knot the fringe close to the rug, twist it, and knot it again at the end of the fringe. So that eliminates the possibility of it being Zapotec.

      The technique use on the rest of the rug has to be considered: the material used for the warp and weft; whether it is a plain weave or weft facing weave; pile or flat weave; the technique used to join different colors (interlocking stitch, slit stitch, soumak stitch, etc.); and more than there is space here to explain.

      I already narrowed it down to a kilim (a reversible flat weave rug with fringe and slit stitches), from Turkey, the Middle East, or Central Asia.
