Hanging a rug on the wall?

Hi Everyone -

I've got a nice rug that I'd like to hang on the wall of my dining room.

In other countries, with walls covered in drywall/gypsum/sheetrock, I would use a tack strip screwed or nailed into the wall studs, and then press the rug onto the tack strip.

But with cement walls here (covered in paper, plaster, and whitewash!), how can I hang a rug? Has anyone discovered a solution, or seen what locals do?
