The city of Khotan, currently known as the city of Xinjian in China, was located an important nexus on the trading route of the Silk Road. From that central location, the road went south to India, north to Asia, and west to Persia/Iran, Anatolia/Turkey, and Europe. As a result, Khotan weavers were inspired by the goods and foods peddlers transported such as pomegranates, medallions, and other motifs from Asia, Persia, and India. Antique Khotan rugs are made of silk or wool and silk. The original colors of these rugs were intense, but they are now much more pale.
We are always happy to collaborate with you on a custom carpet that meets all your specifications...and your wildest dreams! Of course, it will be woven on our very own looms with the best materials under the supervision of our experts.
