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.
