Antique handwoven Peking Chinese Art Deco rug. Peking rugs started in China shortly after the end of the First World War. During this period, Chinese rug weaving factories relocated from Ningxia and other carpet weaving centers to the Chinese capital. Peking rugs could adhere to the traditional patterns derived from Ningxia, but at times the designs became simpler & asymmetrical, often tending toward modern western Art Deco taste, and the weaving technique became thicker and tighter to make.
