Unlike most antique productions, antique Chinese carpets were woven exclusively for personal use. They look like Chinese because they were protected from Western and European influences. It's only during the early 19thth Century they began to open to the Western markets. The production of carpets changes during this time. The ornamental look is abandoned as an open and Chinese art decoration design is adopted. As production changed, Chinese carpets took a more commercial approach. The entire focus was no longer on the art and quality, but on the look and the price. For this reason, there are many Chinese carpets on the market today.

Short story:

A simple comparison between production before 1910 and current production is enough to get the essence of Chinese weaving. The Chinese textile industry has a rich history, and it is believed that the surviving craft examples were made during the reign of Ch. Chen. This is about the first half of 17th Century.

The Chinese Republic was founded in 1912. This is an appropriate time to point out that most carpets, though considered specific for particular regions or manufacturers, are attributed by scientists and authorities to the then Emperor.

One of the most historic and culturally rich Chinese rugs is a design that hardly any other carpet offers. Local art, dragons and ornaments are the main distinguishing features of these carpets.

In the Chinese carpets, the Pinyan Wan is widely seen. This is a symbol associated with the actions of the NSDAP. The symbol is over 3000 years old and thus older than the Egyptian Ahnk.

Demand of Chinese rags:

Many consumers and collectors are in demand in the market for Chinese rugs. The unique that they hold and the good looks make them different from the others. If you look at them, you will be surprised by the journey of life to a time when rest and relaxation reign. In other words, they really manage to meet the needs of an amazing work of art.

The Art Deco rugs were made between 1920 and 1930 in China. A notable manufacturer is the American Walter Nichols. He founded factories in China to fulfill his purpose. The Nichols carpets are made of silk and wool and contain thick formats.
