Amazing Antique East Turkestan Khotan Area Rug, Country of origin: East Turkestan, Circa date: 1900 – Khotan is an ancient city located at the intersection between two worlds. It is located in Western China in East Turkestan and was once a stop on the trading routes between China and the rest of the world. As such, artists in the region were exposed to a range of styles and developed a vast design vocabulary. You will often find rugs that have both Chinese and Persian elements.

This beautiful piece was created around 1900 and has a unique design that shows more Persian influences than other rugs of the region. The rug has ancient symbols that are often found in tribal rugs of the Caucasus Mountain region. The treatment of the diamonds with concentric layers is similar to elements found in Chinese rugs. It also uses colors that are more typical of tribal rugs than those of Chinese influence.

One of the reasons why Khotan rugs continue to be favorites among designers is that each one is a unique piece of artwork. They are a reflection of the world of the weaver and their experiences. This rug has colors that have been mellowed over time, which makes it an excellent way to add reds and blues to your palette in a soft way. The “distressed” look of the rug also gives it a casual feel.

This gorgeous rug is an excellent addition to a tribal-inspired rug or for a Shabby Chic room. In a transitional room, this rug adds an authentic aged look that contrasts with the clean lines of modern furniture styles. Khotan rugs are known for their softness and warmth. This piece will accent hardwood floors, or you could use it as a unique piece in a layered carpet look.

This rug tells the story of the many feet that have passed over its surface, and it gives the space a human touch. It is a versatile piece that will add character to a dining room or conversation area. This rug allows you to create a space that reflects your unique style and will be treasured well into the future.
