One of the greatest strengths of Amritsar Indian rugs is their impeccable quality. Based on the best quality wool, combined with a cotton foundation, double weft an and asymmetric knot, Amritsar rugs have no equals. Antique Indian carpets are distinguished by luxurious feel and extremely indulgent textures. They are characterized by large scale patterns featuring the millefleur designs, mythical beasts and Persian-inspired florals. Their coloration usually relies on earthy, subdued colors including light blues, yellows, teal, burgundies and mauves. The rich heritage and beauty of antique Amritsar rugs continue to position them among the most decorative components of today’s interiors.
This stunning antique rug was woven in the late 19th century, circa 1880. Its sunning design certainly draws the eye, proving time and time again that antique Indian rugs are true masterpieces of weaving. The rug’s pattern includes an allover floral and vine design. The whole is surrounded by a thick border, which includes the same motif. Color palette accompanying it is mostly kept in neutral shades of beige and brown, which will suit most interiors and style. Agra rug‘s size, while rather large (14’6″ × 17’7″ (442 × 536 cm) will be a blessing for those who want to quickly decorate a big space with little effort.
