This is a genuine handmade rug. Since Persian and other oriental rugs were highly demanded in Europe, the rug suppliers decided to produce some of the patterns locally. Some manufactures were established in Germany and Switzerland where Tetex rugs come from and another one was in Austria, where mostly recreated Persian rug pattern with floral motifs.
Without being bias about it, European did much better with color combination than some of the Persian rugs. This rug is in awesome shape, magnificent quality, that's why after almost more than 8 decades of assuage, still has a fair amount of pile. Please support small businesses in any way you can.
