Stunning deep indigo blue dyes on this antique rug from the early 20th century, we can see changes in the blue dyes which is normally only visible in antique rugs of this period or earlier.  The term for dye change is ‘Abrash’ and it adds a great deal of character to a rug.  The vibrant stripe border design is full of colour and is  a classical border design from China.  There are a few areas of minimal wear which can be seen in the main image, but in general it is a very decorative antique rug with the fringe secure and in good wool pile.  It has been professionally washed by ourselves and ready for the floor.

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. It is not uncommon for some Khotan’s to have metallic threads.
