Indian Agra Carpets

The early history of pile carpets weaving in India is a fascinating instance of cross-cultural influences. Initiated from Persian weavers, Indian Agra carpets went on to become some of the most ravishing carpets ever woven. In early stages of the production majority of Indian rugs made of silk and wool foundation with very high and dense number of knots to the square inch. Classical Indian Agra carpets are characterised by yellow, pink, light blue and green colours and lac red which is used only for grounds of fields. The Indian Agra carpets have been very popular since the nineteenth century in Europe and America. Many of the best examples of these wonderful pieces were woven by prisoners in the jail workshops. A number of other carpet types are also produced in India, for examples; silk Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh, however their qualities have been overshadowed by Persian carpets and Turkish rugs.
