      It probably came from Mexico.

      It's not Native American, since the Navajo are the only U.S. tribe that weaves rugs, and they use a unique type of loom and weaving technique that identifies their weavings. They use an upright Navajo loom with a continuous warp, which results in a textile with four selvage sides, rather than fringe on the ends.

      A rug woven with fringe on both ends is woven on a different type of loom, so can not possibly be Navajo or Native American.
