Interested in Buying Chinese Rugs Online?
Chinese rugs feature designs unique in the rug world. Where rug making traditions in Persia, Turkey, and other parts of the world rely largely on abstract patterns, geometric designs, and plant and flower motifs to create a cohesive design, Chinese rugs make use of literal motifs such as dragons, bats, and stylized Chinese characters. Such motifs convey a meaning through symbolism, using objects that have long been associated with such qualities as prosperity, health, and power.
Chinese rugs are distinctive in their use of color, too, with rugs of recent periods featuring pastels and ancient Chinese rugs making use of yellow, blue, white, and fawn, among other colors. In contrast to other rugs, Chinese area rugs are also often sculpted, with areas between colors clearing demarcated in terms of touch. This make for a rug that has interesting textural properties.
Of course, silk carpets from China are a category apart from Chinese wool rugs because of the high cost of using silk. Produced by the silkworm, which is cultivated throughout its lifetime, silk is painstakingly (though not as painful as it is for the caterpillar inside the cocoon, no doubt) extracted from the cocoon after it's been boiled- with the live caterpillar inside.
The resulting rug woven from the silk is very durable and exquisite to look upon as well as to touch. People who care about animal rights may want to stay away from silk, however.
These rugs understandably fetch high prices as they tend to be of heirloom quality and require rather scarce resources to make. None of the profit goes to the silkworms, who do not make it out of the cocoon alive.
Perhaps it's better to go with a Chinese wool rug after all, no? After all, you can get one with designs that are meant to bring good fortune to the owner. You may also want to take is a step farther, or in another direction, by considering a Chinese art deco rug for your home.
These rugs, if they are authentic, come out of the period of art deco leading up to World War II. During this time, low production costs in China led to Westerners getting their art deco rugs made in China. These substituted the traditionally soft colors for bright, vibrant ones, and remade and recombined the traditional motifs found in Chinese rugs to create rugs with a bold and novel design.
