Cleaning Your Indian Rug in & around London

The art of carpet weaving was introduced in India by Akbar, a Mogul emperor, in the early 16th century and further developed by the Mughal emperors to furnish their palaces. The rugs were first manufactured following the Persian classic style but gradually included more Indian art. Indian rugs soon became extremely famous worldwide during the Mughal period. They were, and still are, prized for the quality and finesse of the work.

Types of Indian Rugs

Indian rugs usually have a high density of knots. Their design shows a great attention to detail usually representing realistic attributes. The industry has been flourishing across India and has successfully set up social business models to help the underprivileged. There are many types of Indian rugs from various regions.

Kashmir Rugs

Handmade Kashmir rugs are very high quality, usually made of pure wool or pure silk. They use bright colours and display oriental and floral designs.

Amritsar Rugs

Amritsar rugs are very distinctive from other Indian rugs because they only started manufacturing in the 19th century and were mainly influenced by the West compared to their neighbours who followed the Persian tradition. They are mostly made of high quality wool with a cotton foundation and double weft using pale, earthy colours and botanical patterns. This gives them a luxurious and elegant feel, highly desired by western taste.
