‘ Regal Home Furnishings from Kashmir’
Carpet weaving in Kashmir continue a tradition that began in the 15th and 16th century during the Mogul dynasty, when artists and artisans from central Asia and Persia mingled and settled in Kashmir. Under the royal patronage of Emperor Akbar, the greatest ruler of the Mogul dynasty during the 16th century and an admirer of Safavid art, Kashmir carpet weaving flourished and carpets using the finest Kashmir silk and wool were created for the Mogul courts. The carpets which combined Kashmir tradition and Persian doctrine earned the status of a ‘school’, with Mogul craftsmen introducing new floral motifs(using a more naturalistic inflection than the sometimes highly stylized and thus stiff Persian motif) and animal motifs. These carpets borrowed the plan of the Persian carpets and then enriched it with a greater profusion of beautiful flowering buds (roses, lilac, bellflowers, violets, peonies, lilies as well as the ordinary repertoire) and wild animals (crocodiles, rhinoceroses, elephants and dragons). Often made of fine Kashmir wool and fine Kashmir silk, Kashmir carpets use Persian knots and can reach extremely high knot densities.
