Have a long history going back to the mongolian period in china. Few if any early antique carpets of this kind are actually preserved, but they are represented in illuminated Chinese manuscripts, where they appear in a similar form to examples still produced today.
Mongolian carpets have a transparent composition utilizing see-through patterns against a uniform ground, in keeping with ancient chinese rug design. The motions themselves are Chinese - meanders, knot-work, and fretted medallions - with a taste for open spaces. Colors are soft and earthy with emphasis on subtle mixing of tones or variegation. Unlike their own motives and style, mongolian carpets are the product of particular influences from china. Scholars believe the majority of mongolian rugs were created by foreign minorities living in the area.On the asian steppe, highly decorative felt rugs and panels with undulating patterns were created, but these bear little similarity to the Chinese-influenced mongolian rugs seen on the market today. Because of the domestic carpet weaving industry is small compared to high-profile areas, ancient mongolian carpets are rare commodities. Stylistically, ancient mongolian rugs feature a variety of chinese patterns and buddhist symbols that are drawn in a simplified manner. The color schemes are similarly restrained. Soft neutrals, somber earth tones, stately jewel tones and coral pink accents are found in mongolian rugs. Weavers in mongolia used to be more varied, but they also used colors to produce decorative variegation and textural patterns. Many of these graphic rugs feature subtle variations on traditional eastern patterns. In general, mongolian rugs depict chinese-influenced patterns, such as fretwork spandrels, endless knots, shou symbols, tigers and buddhist motifs.
They also have a preference for less effective design and more effective design.
