Although less well-known than their Persian counterparts, Chinese carpets with strong symbolic designs and intricate wool work are an art themselves. The origins of the craft are still debatable as there are no comprehensive historical records of these fine pieces of floor covers. Although many Chinese antique carpets were made from wool, a common material used by tribes in the northwest, one cannot say that they all from Inner Mongolia or Tibet. After all, it was the looms in Ningxia that exported these exquisite pieces to the rest of China and Europe world in the mid 1800s. Nonetheless, with this carpet gallery located at Yuyuan Road, one can request a replica of their favorite tapestry. Offering customized carpets, the rugs are made to measure in factories located in Guangdong Province and Shanghai. Unlike handmade carpets, which usually come in standard sizes and require an indeterminate waiting time, this company only needs 40 days to produce the carpet of your choice. Prices range from 700 yuan (wool) to 5,000 yuan (natural silk) per square meter.
