HOW TO RECOGNIZE
A HAND-MADE CARPET?
The convenient use and complexity of workmanship of this precious merchandise have left no copier indifferent.
The are, in fact,
two kinds of copy :
* A Bukhara, Naïn or Goum pattern, hand-woven in India or China and very difficult to differentiate.
* A Bakhtiar, or Gabbeh pattern, machine-woven in Belgium, Italy or France.
It is increasingly difficult to distinguish between an authentic carpet and a fake, and these imitations are much more numerous than authentic carpets.
|IN SOME CASES
THE ORIENTAL CARPETS ARE RECONGNIZABLE:
* The borders are hand-stitched.
