The city of Agra in India, home of the Taj Mahal, is the birthplace of the Agra rug. The city was settled by Mogul ruler Akbar The Great (1556-1606 AD), who was responsible for bringing art, including rug weaving, to the subcontinent. The Agra rugs below ? with the extensive, curvilinear patterns found only in the subcontinent ? belong to a collection of antique designs brought back to satisfy an increasing interest in natural dyes and hand-spun wool rugs. Equally suited to classical and contemporary decorating with their simple designs, muted colours and subtle variations, Agra rugs get their antique abrash from an heirloom washing process.
Rug Origin: India
Knotting Technique: Hand Knotted
