While Tibetan rugs of earlier generations were often the hardy production of nomads using simple geometry and thick pile, starting at about the turn of the century a new type of production emerged. At this time a new emphasis on more naturalistic drawing using bright colors appears. Traditional motifs from the plateau are adapted to a new style. This charming rug uses a characteristically Tibetan border and lotus blossoms but with an aesthetic that is unmistakably from the early 20th century.
