The Art of Carpet Making

Indian carpet making can be traced back with certainty to the 16th century Persian influence of the Mughal rule. Under their patronage, Persian artistry flourished across the Indian subcontinent and locals began adopting their techniques and patterns in their work. Weavers would often travel in bands, spreading their craft to new regions. It was one such group of artisans who were heading to the Mughal court when they were attacked by dacoits on the Grand Trunk Road. They sought refuge at a local village and in return for their kindness, the weavers taught the locals their art. Mirzapur's famous Kaleen or carpet industry thus began.
Gradually, local designs were blended with Persian motifs. Carpets of Indian origin became popular in various other parts of the globe through traders. Indian carpets are widely known for high density knotting and beautiful designs even today and have a huge market, especially in Western countries.
