Agra, a city in India, in the late 19th century began producing Persian style carpets and rugs from silk or wool commissioned by British entrepreneurs. Antique Agra rugs are renowned for their beauty of color, elegance of drawing and perhaps above all fineness of knotting. Agra colors are mostly red yellow green and ivory. The design is famous for its floral tendrils, angular vines and stars. Probably the most sophisticated carpet look with softness of visual impact to harmonize the atmosphere. Some of the most impressive and breathtaking examples of paramount workmanship on antique rugs are seen on rugs made in Agra. Agra design emphasizes elegance and simplicity surrounded by bold floral borders. The impressive variety of shades of colors used in Agra rugs and carpets make each rug a unique master piece. Antique Indian Agras are highly collectible and blend with both contemporary and traditional settings.
