Indian production of carpets began in the fifteenth century after Babur, a descendant of Genghis Khan, raided and conquered India and established the Mughal Empire, which was then solidified under his grandson, Akbar. Persian/Iranian weavers were brought in to provide the luxurious carpets missing in India, by combining the weaver's skill and Persian motifs with the art of India and taste of its royal leaders. Production centers were established in Kashmir, Agra, Lahore, Delhi, Bhadohi and Mirzapur, among others. Each area is known for its own style of rich colors created by natural dyes and bold, unique patterns. Indian carpets truly are a reflection of the history of the nation and culture of each region.
Abstract Design refers to a style of composition in the visual arts using color, line, and form without creating the actual representation of objects in the physical world. It is a design using geometric symbols to represent feelings, thoughts, and processes. Early cultures used simple geometric shapes, lines and forms, for symbolic significance and decoration; more recently, artists seeking a new paradigm to reflect changes taking place in science, technology, and philosophy, broke away from centuries of tradition that incorporated perspective to represent reality. Abstract Design Modern Carpets draw inspiration from the abstract designs of the last century, but are woven more recently.
