Default Hand woven or................?

Gents, a friend just bought this and was told it was "hand woven, either Chinese or Tibetan"

It is one of the largest, if not the largest saddle carpet I have ever come across. Approx dimensions 170cm long x 90cm widest point x 70cm at center / narrowest point.

Now, a nice rug at first glance, but................. .......check the weave.

What do you think, i.e. how it was made, that is 'hand wooven'?

I dunno, something just doesn't 'look' right, but just color me skeptical if you like .
