While India does in fact boast a long history of weaving fine rugs and carpets, Indian Style Amritsar rugs are unique in the wide gamut of traditional Indian styles. This is because the weavers of Amritsar had not developed a distinctive style of rug making until the early nineteenth century – hundreds of years after other regions of India had first developed their own weaving traditions.

This mesmerizing antique Indian rugs shows the immense diversity of Amritsar designs by taking us straight into opulent gardens of a mighty Raja. There, we may experience a dense thicket of trees and blooms, tempting with vivid colors and recherché forms. This thriving abundance is enclosed within a series of equally engaging borders adorned with flower branches, cypresses and geometric forms. The profound burgundy of the main field is balanced by the light azure of the main border. This and other large area rugs, oversized rugs are available in our gallery in New York and online rugs.

Both background colors are perfectly matched to the various shades of the pattern, including sapphire, ivory, gold, emerald and sandy, and result in a harmonious, dignified composition. As befits a genuine Amritsar carpet, this one was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. It shows in the soft and durable pile, as well as intricate design, which will serve its lucky owners for generations without any signs of wear. Due to its impeccable execution and timeless design, this sublime antique rug will easily fit into any contemporary household, bringing in vibrancy and exotic atmosphere of oriental wild nature.
