The Imperial Kashmir Silk Rug Collection
Under the royal patronage of Emperor Akbar, the greatest ruler of the
Mogul dynasty during the 16th century, Kashmir rug weaving flourished
and rugs using the finest Kashmir silk and wool were created for the
Mogul courts. The rugs which combined Kashmir tradition and Persian
doctrine earned the status of a ‘school’, with Mogul craftsmen
introducing new floral and animal motifs.
The Imperial Kashmir Silk Rug Collection is an exquisite collection of silk rugs that
masterfully captures the opulence of the ancient Mogul designs and
reflects grandeur that befits a royal court.
