This imposing antique Indian rug comes from the iconic weaving center of Amritsar located in the northwest of India, near the Kashmir region, known for the wide gamut of traditional Indian styles. Both the design and the execution of the rug emphasize its high quality that allowed the piece to survive until this day in excellent condition, with the appearance ready to fit into contemporary interior décors. The main field, complementary with the series of equally compelling borders, is adorned with a classic overall botanical pattern reflecting the sheer beauty of lush oriental gardens, with palmettes, stylized foliage and flowering climbers. This thriving abundance is balanced by a toned and versatile color palette based on various tones of beige, camel and caramel. Large yet utterly subtle, old but completely up-to-date, this antique Indian rug is full of paradoxes that fantastically work in its favor. The cherry on top is the masterful hand-knotting of the finest wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques that ensured the firm structure of the body. If properly maintained, the Amritsar rug will serve its proprietors for generations without any signs of blemish, bringing in the ever-lasting elegance and recherché charm of Indian artistry.
