Rare meditation sitting rug, constructed with cotton warp and wool weft, this piece was most likely woven in Khotan, Xinjiang and dates at least to the middle 19th century. The wool pile is pretty much worn down to nothing except for the darker brown part that has a stylized “lotus” medallion in the center and border. I bought this the Barkor bazaar in Lhasa over 20 years ago and the side still has traces of felt where another wool border would have been sewn on in the traditional Tibetan fashion. 61xm/24in x 61cm/24in.
