As an eminent patron of the arts, Jahangir (reigning from 1605-1628), possessed a deep love for the beauty of nature, influencing the artists of his court. Unlike antique Agra carpets manufactured in the prisons of India, antique North Indian rugs were products of a cottage industry controlled by families of antique carpet weavers. With a knotted pile of the softest pashmina wool, the antique North Indian carpets in NYC originated and perfected by these weaving families, have to this day, rarely been equaled.
