Chinese

 

 

Baotou Rugs (also: Pau-Tou) come from the industrial port city of the same name on the Huang He river in the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region of China. These rugs use Buddhist symbols and distinctly Chinese colours.


Beijing (also: Peking) By the 1860’s there were workshops in Beijing making rugs for the imperial court. In the 1920’s and 30’s rugs in a vaguely Art Deco style were produced for the American market in rug factories in Hebel and Shandong provinces. These rugs were woven by hand, but the workshops were highly organized with foreign companies controlling all phases of the production. Many rugs from this period had plain grounds of pearl grey or navy with wide solid-colour borders and simple floral spray design elements. The 1950’s and 60’s saw the Chinese government take over the carpet factories, and the development of thick, carved rugs in Chinese designs and pastel colours. Most of these rugs are made in state-owned co-operatives in and around Tianjin.


Ninghsia (also Ning-Hsia, Ningxia) come from the town of the same name on the northern borders of China in the province of Ningxia. Rug making in the area has been traced back to the Ming dynasty 1368-1644. The carpets produced in this area are classic Chinese rugs. They usually have yellow or pink grounds with blue designs. Carpets were woven for Tibetan and Chinese Buddhist temples and monasteries throughout China, and unlike their Islamic counterparts woven in Turkey and Persia, were designed with Buddhist, Taoist, and general mystical and mythological motifs and symbols. Like Samarkand in Central Asia, Ninghsia is positioned on an important trade route. As a result all the rugs sold in the town became known as Ninghsia and the name became the generic term for a good quality Chinese rug.
