The history of modern wool hand-knotted Indian rugs can be traced back to the 16th century, when the Mughal emperor Akbar introduced the art of carpet weaving to India. During this period, Persian artisans were brought to India to teach their skills to the local weavers, and this led to the emergence of the Indian carpet industry.
In the 19th century, the British East India Company began exporting Indian carpets to Europe, and this helped to increase the popularity of Indian rugs in the Western world. Indian rugs were highly prized for their intricate designs and high-quality materials, and they soon became a symbol of luxury and refinement.
In the early 20th century, the Indian carpet industry underwent a period of modernization, with the introduction of new techniques and materials. Hand-knotted wool rugs became a popular export item, and Indian rug weavers began to experiment with new colors and designs.
Today, Indian rugs continue to be highly regarded for their beauty and quality. Many of the traditional techniques used in the weaving of Indian rugs have been passed down through generations of weavers, and these skills continue to be honed and refined.
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of sustainable and eco-friendly materials in the production of Indian rugs. Many Indian rug weavers have begun to use natural dyes and organic wool in their rugs, in order to create environmentally-friendly products that are also beautiful and durable.
