Story Behind the Art The Savonnerie rugs have their origins in French pile floor coverings that were produced at the Savonnerie Manufactory, most prestigious factory of knotted pile rugs, that enjoyed its greatest period during 1650-1685. Today the name Savonnerie depicts the tradition of knotted pile Savonnerie rugs with their unique design and color schemata of essentially French designs, pictorial or armorial framed medallions, densely massed flowers in bouquets or leafy rinceaux against deep blue, black or deep brown grounds, within multiple borders. Further what distinguishes French Aubusson Savonnerie rugs is the technique of depth perspective that was invented by 17th century French artists and weavers whereby the patterns in the rug seem three dimensional. As such, Aubusson Rugs exhibit complex color patterns, symmetrical knots and flamboyant designs. Today, it is still possible to enjoy these rugs as they continue to be replicated in India, Pakistan, China, and Iran.Made by skilled craftsman, the rug is a beautiful symphony of bold motifs, stunning colors and consummate artisanship. This rug representing an illustrious legacy of exquisite artistry and intricate craftsmanship is primed to add visual glamor and class to its surroundings.
