Chinese Rugs

I noticed that many of my blog posts have focused on Middle Eastern carpets so I thought that today I would share with you an image of a beautiful Chinese carpet that we recently cared for.  Its motifs, including the dragon, are typical for Chinese carpets - and that deep blue background was even more beautiful in person.  While the motifs are different and their countries of origin may be far apart, Chinese carpets require the same simple general care that Middle Eastern carpets require in order to last a lifetime (and even more!) - occasional vacuuming and professional Chinese carpet cleaning every two years or so; and occasional rotation of the carpet to allow for more even wear and sun exposure.   I promise to introduce more of a geographical diversity in my future posts!
