Carpet production began in the 1740s in Aubusson, France, to serve members of the royal court for whom carpets from Savonnerie (the former soap factory transformed into a luxury carpet workshop) could not be obtained. Aubusson carpets, generally larger in size, are known for their flat weave style, although numerous carpets with pile have been produced. Initially, Oriental designs were favored; however, over time, the influence of the Renaissance style introduced architectural and floral patterns. Central colors tend to be muted, with darker colors framing them, or appearing along the edges.
We are always happy to collaborate with you on a custom carpet that meets all your specifications...and your wildest dreams! Of course, it will be woven on our very own looms with the best materials under the supervision of our experts.
