Ardebil is tranquil in design. It has 16 bands radiating out and equidistant from an almost round 16 pointed medallion. This suggests that the design was intended to indicate a circular dome from which two golden lamps would be suspended. As is the custom, a quarter of the center design is repeated in the four corners for harmony and symmetry.
The history and development of the carpet industry in Kashmir were associated with and influenced by the opulent lifestyles of its rulers, nobles, and aristocrats. The introduction of this industry into Kashmir dates back to the reign of Zain-ul- Abdin (Badshah), c1420 A. D. Hundreds of master craftsmen were invited to Kashmir from Persia. Some of the craftsmen settled in Kashmir and initiated rug weaving. This is perhaps due to an atmosphere conducive to this trade and also the great appreciation for these works of art.
Under the patronage of the Mughal emperors like Akbar and Shah Jahan, Kashmiri artisans created the finest silk and wool rugs for the nobles, aristocrats, royal courts, and grand palaces. Kashmiri artisans create exclusive museum quality rugs using a high number of knots per square inch and by blending scored of vivacious colors into a single rug.
Our selection of exquisite silk rugs reflects the glory and grandeur of the royal Mughal courts.
