The carpets of Xianjiang ( Western Turkestan ) form a unique group:Chinese motives are cleverly mixed with designs unique to the area.The three medallion pattern derives from the Buddha and flanking Bodhisattvas in temples in the area.The field is a light grayish mauve with eye-catching brown outlines and details.Cloud knots,flowering pomegranates ( ! ) and fret corners add to the multi cultural exoticism.The detached rosette main border is an East Turkestan specialty.
The long carpet format is common on weavings from that area and it reflects local use of carpets on the heated seating platform ( K'ang ) in the main room of village houses.The foundation has a cotton warp and a wool / cotton mix for the weft.The colours are muted with mauve,dark brown,two yellows,old ivory are the major hues.The condition is fairly good,with an evenly low pile of resilient wool.Simple designs and relatively restricted colour range,make these rugs particularly adoptable and popular in modern interior design.This rug has been cleaned professionally and is free of any stains or odors.For further information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
