Chinese rugs are hand woven works of art that have the ability to pull nearly any room together. No matter what style decor you have, a Chinese rug can serve as a focal point. They are intricate and beautiful, even mesmerizing. Many Chinese rugs are antiques and heirlooms, passed down through generations all over the world.
Carpets woven in China initially were used primarily as saddle cloths. Later they assumed greater cultural and artistic significance. They started being used for prayer rugs, temple floor coverings and decorative wall hangings. Up until the Ch’ing dynasty these woven wool rugs were made exclusively in Northwest China. The modern Chinese rug industry was established by a Llama priest paying tribute to the Court in Peking. He offered examples of the weavers art in Northwest China. The rugs became so popular at the Court that the priest started a weaving school just outside of Peking and spread these weaving techniques to the people. This was the beginning of what we see today as the modern Chinese rug and Oriental rug industry.
