Light and Decorative Antique Indian Cotton Agra Rug, Country of Origin: India, Circa date: 1900 – The antique Indian rugs from the rug weavers at Agra are known for their delicate designs and fine craftsmanship. This beautiful antique cotton rug was created around the turn of the 20th century and features an all over design that creates a garden of flowers dancing across the field. Its delicate design of this soft colored antique Indian Agra carpet is highlighted through the use of subtle tones and shades that give it a refined and sophisticated feel.
This is a classic design that could easily transition into a modern room setting. The design of the antique Oriental rug repeats and goes from edge to edge without a clearly defined border. The edges are bound in a color that blends with the rest of the rug, drawing the attention to the overall design. The use of cotton, rather than wool, gives the antique Indian Agra rug a light and airy feeling which it will carry through the rest of the room.
Similar antique rugs have served as the inspiration for modern manufactured pieces, but this rug has a distinctively handmade quality and reflects the care and attention to detail for which the old Agra carpet makers were known. The rug colors of the piece are neutral, with only subtle shades of delicate blues to add a hint of accent.
