This rug exhibits an interesting version of the eight-pointed-star-in-octagon.

Inside each octagon, instead of the usual one star, there are four stars arranged around a small diamond.

Note the two different designs in the outer borders. The "ocean wave" pattern in the outer border changes into an arrow-shaped pattern on the side.
