Dear Yon and Michael (and everyone else),
You prompted me to look at what I collect. Less than 20% of what I refer to as an oriental rug collection consists of rugs or carpets. The rest is bags, garments and other assorted textile items. And the "oriental" part for most collectors just means western and central Asia and Asia minor. The point is, we use "rug" (and many other words) very loosely and generally understand it to include anything that might be advertised or described in HALI.
And then we complain about the errors in books!
