This lovely rug is made with the chain stitch technique in colors of blue, lavender, mauve, green and tans on a cream ground.  Chain  stitch is a sewing and embroidery technique in which a series of looped stitches form a chain like pattern. Chain stitch is an ancient craft – examples of surviving Chinese chain stitch embroidery worked in silk thread have been dated to the Warring States period(5th – 3rd century BC).
Chain stitches can form flowing, curved lines, they are used in many surface embroidery styles that mimic "drawing" in thread.
