Description
Carpet weaving in Agra India dates back to the 16th century wherein the Akbar the Great established his capitol at Agra where his grandson eventually constructed the Taj Mahal. Although the rug weaving industry in Agra was limited, it produced beautiful antique carpets widely recognized for their artistry and exquisite craftsmanship. Antique and semi-antique Agra rugs are ranked as some of the finest of Oriental collector décor.

The beauty of Agra carpets is derived from the delicate combination of the grandeur of Persian antiques with new motifs reflective of their own, creative style. The designs of spiraling vines are often combined with birds, elephants or people. In fact, these master weavers were so artistically talented that Persian rugs adopted some of the designs in their own rugs, including rows of flowers in vases.

As masters of vegetable dying, Agra weavers developed unique, muted color palettes giving these rugs a celestial appearance. This collectors piece is no exception with its muted tones woven into an outpouring of gold paying homage to an ancient art.
