Agra Design Wool Carpet
Agra is one of the cities in India that served as a production center for carpets after the establishment and consolidation of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century. Persian weavers were brought in to combine their weaving skills and Persian patterns with those of Indian patterns and the tastes of India's royal leaders. Demand for these rugs grew outside of India, particularly due to the high density of knotting, and not just the design elements. In the late 19th and early 20th century, under the era of British colonialism and subsequent influence, colors and patterns changed. Some of the most expensive and exclusive carpets from this era were made by prisoners in the city jails.

Art Deco Carpets showcase what the mid 20th century was largely defined by – the experimentation and innovation in the arts, industries, the sciences and popular culture. An Art Deco area rug was produced between the 1920’s and 1970’s. These carpets explore the boundaries, and push the limits, of textural and visual style, creating designs that provide a strong sensory experience and can quickly change the look and feel of your interior home design.
Over the past several years, there has been a substantial increase in the popularity of certain types of Art Deco rugs. In the 21st century, the world has seen a renewed interest in vintage rugs. This has created a surging demand for authentic mid 20th century works of art. And, while modernized productions continue to be produced, despite its “vintage” design, it is not, by definition, truly vintage. Art Deco rug styles are exciting and dynamic examples of the various artistic developments of the mid 20th century, and each have their own story to tell.
