The art of manufacturing carpets was introduced in India, probably by the great mogul Akbar in 16th century which brought in Persian weavers together with skilled pattern artists mainly for producing carpets for his palace.
During the 16th, 17th and 18th century many fine carpets were woven here made of the finest sheep wool and silk, with Persian patterns.
To tell the origin of an Indo carpet they often use a prefix; Indo Mir, Pakistan-Bochara and Indo Gabbeh.
Other carpets from India are sold under the names of Amritsar, Bhadohi, Jaipur, Kashmir, Mirsapur and Srinagar.
Indian handmade carpets are known for high quality materials and dyes. These rugs last and can be passed down from generation to generation.
