    Indian Carpets

    Mughals during the invasion of India brought the art of carpet weaving to India. Akbar is accredited to introducing the art of carpet weaving to India in 1500 A.D. during his reign. The region's hot climate could never have required the warmth of carpets. Only in the 16th century, the Mughal emperors patronized Persian carpets for their royal courts and palaces.[24] During this period, he brought Persian craftsmen from their homeland and established them here. Initially, the carpets woven showed the classic Persian style of fine knotting. Gradually it blended with the mughal as well as Indian art. Thus the carpets produced became typical of the Indian origin and gradually the industry began to diversify and spread all over the subcontinent.[25]

    The Indian carpets are well known for their designs with attention to detail and presentation of realistic attributes. The carpet industry in India flourished more in its northern part with major centers found in Kashmir, Jaipur, Agra and Bhadohi.[26]

    Indian carpets are known for their high density of knotting. Hand Knotted Carpets are a speciality and widely in demand in the West. The Carpet Industry in India has been successful in establishing social business models directly helping in the upliftment of the underpriviledged sections of the society. Two notable examples of such social entrepreneurship ventures are Jaipur rugs[27] and Fabindia.[28]

    Another category of Indian rugs which though quite popular in most of the western countries but not received much press is hand-woven rugs of Khairabad (Citapore rugs). Khairabad a small town in Citapore (now spelled as "Sitapur") district of India had been ruled by Raja Mehmoodabad. Khairabad (Mehmoodabad Estate) was part of Oudh province which had been ruled by shi'i muslims having persian linkages. Citapore rugs made in Khairabad and neighbouring areas are all hand-woven and distinct from tufted and knotted rugs. Flat weave is the basic weaving technique of Citapore rugs and generally cotton is the main weaving material here but jute, rayon and chennile are also popular and Ikea and Agocha have been major buyers of rugs from this area.
