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 edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a beautiful contrast to the center.
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 creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.
The background of this Chinese is blue gray. The border features beige, gold and terracotta.
The silk of the pile of this Chinese allows the colors forming the pattern to shine in different nuances depending on the lighting. It makes this Chinese a real jewel and creates a cozy and at the same time very elegant and premium atmosphere in the room. Silk is manually extracted from the cocoons of the silk moth. Since individual silk threads are extremely long, the result is very thin yarns, which are nevertheless tear-resistant under low stress. Smaller rug knots can be made with this thin yarn, which create finer patterns. Therefore, the finest rugs in the world are hand-knotted made of pure silk. In this Chinese even the background is made of pure silk. Due to the thin but durable material of the weft and warp threads, a particularly fine knotting and, therefore, a particularly fine pattern is feasible.
