Khotan rugs and carpets came from the East Turkestan city of Khotan, and are part of the legends of the Silk Road. Designs vary with ornate borders and large elaborate medallions to gorgeous repeating patterns.  The city is famous for producing both silk and wool carpets. The pomegranate in Khotan rugs became a symbol for prosperity, with its branches fashioned into an exquisite geometric folk design.

Samarkand carpets were woven by women from the Uzbek and Kyrgyz tribes (ethnic groups affiliated with present-day Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan) located in the cities of Khotan and Yarkand. The rugs were most popular from the 1600s and into the 1900’s.   Samarkand and Khotan rugs actually come from present-day Xinjiang, which is located in China.
