Khotan is a city in Eastern Terkistan which is now part of China. Khotan region produced high quality rugs during the 18’th and 19’th century. Khotan rugs are very rare and well known around the World for their simple designs and muted colors. The dye and colors used in Khotan rugs are not found in any other rugs. These rugs are particularly liked by Interior Decorators.
It is a very remote area and we have personally travelled to this part of the World to collect these rugs from individual homes. These rugs were not made for western markets but for domestic use. The sizes are usually narrow and long.
