Antique Indian Rugs - Traditionally, India has excelled in the production of fine textiles, palatial carpets, magnificent shawls and Art Deco rugs that were influenced by colonial British trends. Despite adverse conditions and invasions from overseas colonists and imperial powers, Indian craftspeople managed to maintain a diverse and individual textile culture. Even when the weavers of antique Indian rugs borrowed designs from Persia, they immediately attained a new flavor.

The colors are rich, the motifs are grand and the composition of antique Indian rugs is always elegant. From the 1600s to the early 1900s, Indian craftspeople created a virtually unlimited number of unforgettable carpets and textiles. Whether they are woven, embroidered or printed, every antique rug originating from India will boast an original style and an elegant countenance that is worthy of the most respected shah or the most distinguished British ruler.

When designers are furnishing an Art Deco apartment, a stately painted Victorian home or a Bohemian abode, the rich style, strong colors and elegance of traditional Indian textiles and antique carpets allows them to complement the ambiance of any interior setting. Textiles and carpets from India are stately, harmonious and well-balanced works of art that never have an excess of any one design element. These individual pieces are part of a separate realm of textiles that is waiting to be discovered.

Antique Indian rugs were produced with Persian influence and commonly feature cotton and silk in the pile. However little is known about rug production prior to the Mughal era because few have survived. Patterns are typically made with silk with gold or silver thread for brocades. The primary materials used are cotton, silk and wool in Indian textiles.

Colors often used are red, blue, purple, green, yellow and black. The most well known antique rugs from India come from the areas of Agra and Amritsar.

Also India is known for their fine shawls and embroideries.
