Chinese Saddle Rugs


It is to be expected that the publication of my book Dragon & Horse. Saddle Rugs and Other horse tack from China and Beyond will excite discussion. Particularly so, because it deals with some hot issues like the ‘ RKO” rugs, the origin of Tibetan carpet knotting etc. Hopefully it will invite other public and private owners to take a better look at the saddle rugs in their collections. At least I hope so.  In the meantime I will continue my research the best I can and publish any new results on this website from now on.


the book
Simply a must for anyone who loves textiles, horses or the history of China’s military, sports or culture.
