If I interpret your qustion correctly, you'd like to know which of the rugs being woven during the past 50 years or so will be collectible, say, 50 years from now.
The problem is that fashions change, and nobody knows which, if any, will become collectible. It seems reasonable to suppose that the "programmed" rugs and carpets produced in large numbers will not be, because there are so many of them. Then again, we need to remember that there are people who collect all sorts of things. If you doubt this, I refer you to the site linked below.
