Chinese carpets

happened to come across a carpet shop in a shopping centre here. mainly silk carpets from Henan and wool carpets from Tibet and Xinjiang. but Persian carpets seems better in terms of colour, quality and design to me.

however, a web search came up with an interesting article about Chinese carpets. it seems that a lot of popular motifs in Persian rugs had originated from China. another article also told interesting stories about Mongolian, Xinjiang and Tibetan rugs. intriguing...more things to learn for me...
