Based on the top-notch luminous wool, with a cotton foundation, double weft an and asymmetric knot, carpets form Amritsar are distinguished by luxurious feel and extremely indulgent textures. Antique Indian rugs and carpets are characterized by large scale patterns featuring the millefleur designs, mythical beasts and Persian-inspired florals.
