RUG NAME: Khotan Carpet
AGE: unknown
ID(Jozan): no. 102219
DESCRIPTION: Size: (1.50m x 2.30m)
The art of carpet making has developed since time
immemorial in the vast territory of Xinjiang. The oasis towns of
Khotan, Yarkand and Kashgar in Xinjiang Province, western China, have
been considered the main production centres of rugs since ancient
times, 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 is produced locally using
techniques that have evolved over the centuries.
Uyghur weavers use both horizontal and vertical looms; the latter are
more common and permit a greater degree of control over the knotting.
Uyghur rugs stand out for their 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 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 article in Ghereh Magazine).
