Beautiful Antique Chinese Peking Rugs and Carpets

Peking Rugs – Antique Peking carpets represent a newer antique production that began in China immediately following World War I, when carpet manufacturing moved from Ningxia and other interior centers to the capital. Peking carpets were now made in larger sizes intended to be more usable as decorative room-size rugs in the Europe and the United States.

Peking rugs could adhere to the traditional patterns derived from Ningxia production. But at times the designs became simpler and asymmetrical, often tending toward modern western Art Deco taste, and the weaving technique became thicker and tighter to make the rugs more durable for western use.
