Indian rugs closely resemble the Persian style in design and coloration. Designs frequently include elaborate floral scenes with occasional pictorials involving people or animals tastefully displayed. Artisans use vegetable dyes for achieving a unique palette of colors such as greens, yellows, blues and pinks as well as a typically dominate reddish color used primarily for the field color. Attention to detail and realistic design interpretation truly set these apart from other imported carpets.
They are typically made of wool woven in a cotton foundation. In a more valuable piece, you might find actual silk was used in both the foundation and the pile. Whether showing a distinct Persian influence or original cultural adaptation and presentation, you can proudly display these works of handcrafted art that effectively capture and preserve the heritage and history of India.
