BH SUN H7217 100 PERCENT MILK WASH GRAY HAND KNOTTED KHOTAN 9 X 12 FT. AREA RUG

Khotan are unique hand knotted rugs that were first created in the ancient city of Khotan (Hotan) which is located in the southern Uygur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang (Chinese Turkistan). Khotan also gained the name Samarkand rugs after the Central Asian trading center. The rug is made of the combination of Chinese details and Center Asian design with Western vivid coloring; however now the colors look more washed out pastels because of the recent use of vegetable dyes. There has been an influence of using all-silk by earlier Persian carpets; however the decoration usually consists of lattice designs of clustered rosettes and sometimes use pictorial design. On the wool rugs similar designs have been used with triple-medallion schemes in blue on red (or vice versa). There also has been little vases that have pomegranate vine growing from them and other designs. Khotan rugs' border could have Chinese waves and fret patters flowering vines or be plain.
