In Xinjiang, carpet weaving is an age-old traditional craft requiring superb skill to create the carpets which are famous all over the world. Hotan County, renowned for its jade, is also the home of Xinjiang's carpet/rug weaving trade. For anyone sauntering along the streets of Hotan's towns, the most spectacular goods on display are the gorgeous elaborate carpets.
Carpet weaving techniques from Xinjiang were also introduced to China along with carpets, and served to stimulate interest in carpet making, so that by the time of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), they were being commonly produced in many regions throughout China.
Chinese handmade rugs were essentially ornamental, for those of high stature and wealth who could afford to purchase them or have them made. Chinese designs differed as well in that they were largely symbolic, influenced by Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian thought.
They have kept their original designs but have changed their motifs to something a little more modern to keep with the fashion in today’s society, such motifs are dragons & flowers with some empty backgrounds mainly in reds or beiges.
