Art Deco, or Arts Décoratifs, is a visual arts movement that emerged from France just prior to the start of World War I and ended just before the outbreak of World War II. Art Deco is recognized for its bold colors and geometric patterns, high quality craftsmanship and luxury materials, and the exotic influence of the Middle and Far East. Textiles, upholstery and carpets played an important role in this movement, with inspirations for its designs being drawn from ballet stage sets and costume design.
Chinese carpets are known to have been produced nearly 2,000 years ago. The patterns on older rugs were influenced by ceramic painters. These rugs may also display dragon, Buddhist, and other religious motifs. Cotton was used for the foundation of early carpets along with big knots to achieve thick but flexible rugs. Originally, rugs were produced for use within the country only, but by the early 19th century, rugs were being exported. Contact with the west radically altered the production methods.
