Story Behind the Art: Indo Persian rugs (made in India) are a specific rug style that favors the weaving and design techniques of the authentic Persian rugs from Iran. The rugs retain the essence of the Persian rugs and produce identical themes and patterns consisting of beautifully designed medallions, niches, trees and figural motifs and all-over floral motifs. It was during the Mughal rule in India that the rug industry reached its zenith and came on its own as an art form. Tight weaving, silk like wool, bright, deep color range and realistic motifs became the defining feature of Indian rugs. It is this combination of exquisitely detailed and painstaking craftsmanship and masterful interplay of design elements that has earned Indian rugs age-defying allure and patronship defying borders and time.
