Place of origin
Probably rugs were already known very early on in China. The invasion of the Mongols around the year 1279, who not only carried Central Asian rugs with them, but also used them as tents and saddlery, boosted the local production in China, which probably already existed at that time. An exhibition in Saint Louis in the USA in 1903 aroused interest in Chinese rugs in the western world. Soon afterwards, rugs were produced in China solely for export to Europe and North America.
The pile is a plain beige. The simple design is understated, but can also provide a great design accent. The monochrome appearance of this rug fits perfectly in any environment.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Chinese. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The embellished edging (border) forms a beautiful contrast to the center and creates a transition at the edge of the rug.
Chinese rugs are hand knotted from silky shiny wool. For the production of high quality Chinese rugs the coat of the Tibetan goat is used. The knot density is, as is typical in Chinese rugs, relatively low and the pile is shorn long.
Wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties: Due to wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on the indoor climate and muffles sound. The weft and warp threads of this Chinese are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
