Kravet Carpet's Chalon flatweave hand woven rug made of 100% wool in rose. From the Eastern Collection. Made in China.
A center of French carpet production which became the defining area of fine flat woven carpets from the 15th to 19th Centuries. Many tapestry rugs were woven in the 18th and 19th centuries and generally those have designs of floral and chinoiserie patterns enhanced by pastel palettes. The creation of the Aubusson Loom (Horizontal Loom) allowed the technique of flat weaving rugs to be produced outside of France, particularly in China, where most Aubussons are woven today.
