INDIAN HAND KNOTTED RUGS
India has a long history of making hand knotted rugs. Some of the finest antique rugs are Indian Agra. The weavers were originally brought from Persia to India in the 16th Century. At first the designs were Persian but over time India developed their own style of weaving with influences from Indian culture and architecture.
