A few terms are employed to convey the degree of authenticity of a rug. Authentic rugs are hand-woven with at least one of the following qualities: “Original” describes a rug for which all parts of its production come from the traditional area of the rug’s manufacture. It is possible to find similar rugs elsewhere that are finely woven but use foreign dyes or wool from places as far removed as New Zealand and Tibet; such rugs cannot be termed original. ”One-of-a-kind” refers to a rug that is made with only natural fibers, dyes, and wool, and not mass produced. A “unique” rug is not only one-of-a-kind, but also is the only known rug of specific design woven in the rug’s place of origin. (In other words, if it was woven from a template, the template was not used as a model for additional rugs.)
