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. Aubusson is the name of a city in the French Department Creuse. The Aubusson style is a French Gobelin design with floral decors and a baroque style design. The Aubusson art of carpet making had a decisive impact on the designs of Kerman and Hereke rugs. Nowadays Aubusson designs are often being copied especially in China.
