Under the patronage of Mughal emperors like Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal, Kashmiri artisans created the finest silk carpets for nobles, aristocrats, royal courts, and grand palaces. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Kashmir valley and its flora and fauna, new decorative floral motifs were introduced into the carpet-making. Over time, using the finest silk fibers, Kashmiri artisans were able to create exclusive museum-quality rugs using an extremely high number of knots per square inch, and blending scores of vivacious colors into a single rug.
