These are the arid steppes and mountain ranges that were traveled by silk route merchants connecting western Europe to China. Khotan rugs were once called Samarkand rugs after the Central Asian trading center. They combine Chinese details with Central Asian design schemes and Persian Heritage. dyes have reduced their effect to washed-out pastels. Some of the designs bearing clusters of rosettes but mostly evocative of all the East Turkestan motifs is the pomegranate, signifying prosperity and Wealth. Also with triple-medallion schemes in blue on red, pomegranate vines that grow from little vases, or perhaps coffered patterns showing chrysanthemum heads locked into squares.
