  • Notes: The Indian city of Agra is the home of the Taj Mahal, and it has an extensive and notable tradition of carpet weaving. Agra was a major production center for the best of the classical Mughal Carpets. Its workshops produced elegant, quality rugs that have been praised for their originality and workmanship. Agra carpets combine the grandeur and grace of the well-known Persian antique carpet designs with their own original themes. There can be observed designs of spiraling vines, often combined with animals such as birds, elephants, and even people. There is an artistic cross pollination between two places, Agra and Persia, carried on until the end of the 19th century. Weavers of Agra were masters at vegetable dyeing and eventually created their own unique palette of color. A profusion of gold combined with soft mid-tone blues are often flaunted. The weavers used a range of soft rust-reds, pinks, and a quite appealing lavender tone. This unique combination of colors give Agra rugs a light, ethereal appearance, which is beautiful and stunning. In addition, Agra rugs are distinct and highly acclaimed works of art whose delicate palette of color and fanciful drawings are quite unique among decorative carpets. In terms of production, they are extremely well made, possessing a satisfying amount of weight and durability. Overall, they are viewed as the best Indian rug from the post-Mughal era.
