Carpet Manufacturers in India


The art of hand-knotted carpets probably originated in the Southern Central Asia during 3rd and 2nd millennium BCE. Turkmenistan and Persia (Iran) were the countries that served as a cradle of the art of carpet making.


In India, the art of carpet making was introduced with the beginning of the Mughal Dynasty in the early sixteenth century. The last successor of Timur, Babar, extended his rule from Kabul to India to establish the Mughal Empire. Under their patronage, Indian craftsmen adopted Persian techniques and designs and gradually blended with their own creativity. Carpets woven in Punjab at that time (often-called Lahore carpets today) made use of motifs and decorative styles found in the Mughal architecture.


During the Mughal period, the carpets made on the Indian subcontinent became so famous that demand for them spread abroad. These carpets had distinctive designs and boasted a high density of knots. Carpets made for the Mughal emperors, including Jahangir and Shah Jahan, were of the finest quality. Under Shah Jahan's reign, Mughal carpet weaving took on a new aesthetic level and transformed as unique classic art pieces.

This tradition of carpet weaving was carried from the Mughals to other dynasties and further taken down to generations and spread across various states. Each state or region now has a unique mix of its own specialty and ethnic sense of carpet designing. Also, the quality and categories of carpets depend on the availability of raw materials and skill set of craftsmen of different regions.


The Indian subcontinent has always welcomed the new cultures and people. This has made the Indian culture richly diversified with art forms accumulated over the centuries. This cultural impact is reflected on the carpet manufacturing art.
