RUG NAME: Kashgar pomegranate-vase design
AGE: unknown
ID(Jozan): no. 102021
DESCRIPTION: Size:(200mx3.50m)Kashgar carpet with pomegranate-vase design on a dark blue dye ground.
The art of carpet making has developed since time
immemorial in the vast territory of Xinjiang. The oasis towns of
Khotan, Yarkand and Kashgar have been considered the main production
centres of rugs in Xinjiang since antiquity and among these Khotan has
always played the dominant role. The entire town is in some way
involved in the production of carpets and it houses a great number of
workshops and ateliers. Traditional Uyghur rugs are entirely made from
wool, a wool and cotton blend or from silk. Those in wool are made
using high quality fibers taken from a special breed of sheep.The silk
for rugs was produced locally, using techniques that had evolved since
antiquity. Uyghur weavers use both horizontal and vertical looms; the
latter are more common and also permit a greater degree of control
over the knotting. Uyghur rugs stand out for a variety of different
decorations, including composition developed around geometric motifs
that might be inspired by plants or animals. A special mention must be
made of figural carpets. Figural compositions of any sort vanished
from the local repertory for many centuries until the 19th century,
but as often occur in decorative languages, expressions survived in
which elements can be recognized from an earlier consolidated
ornamental motif. The most wide spread compositions are figurative in
the strict sense of the term but they are not narrative; they
reproduce animals in landscapes in a naturalistic manner; they are
distinguished by their static nature and by lack of action. (from an
