China

The art of Chinese carpet making can look back on a highly developed ancient culture. Chinese artists and craftsmen have achieved greatness in China as well as other Oriental countries to which they have been called by art-loving rulers and princes. Their influence on the art of carpet making is indisputable. Carpet making in comparison is a rather young Chinese art. In the 17th century Chinese carpet making has been encouraged by the Chinese emperor K'ang-hi. The dragon motif is one of the typical and characteristic motifs of traditional Chinese rugs. Many of the Chinese rugs of today are being relief-cut and shine-washed (only first class chrome colors are being used). Altogether one can say that Chinese rugs are very elegant rugs with an ancient very characteristic tradition.
