The article argues that the so-called American rug industry is not yet an industry because there is no accurate data on rug sales, production and distribution. The rug industry is only a category of the textile or floor covering industries. An industry should have a central buying event, a community of participants, a central association and a recognition as an industry by American government agencies.
