Chinese style

In fact, China’s carpet culture also has a very long history, but the previous handmade silk rugs were only used exclusively by the aristocrats of the palace, and rarely appeared in the homes of ordinary people. This led to the vast majority of people’s knowledge of handmade rugs is very limited. During the Republic of China, China’s hand-woven carpet industry has been very prosperous. There are about three hundred carpet factories only in Beijing, and all the carpets produced are used for export. The pattern of the carpet has gradually added some Chinese elements and gradually transformed into a true Chinese style.
