The Indian Mogul emperors of the 16th and 17th centuries imported not only Persian carpets but their weavers as well. These produced finely woven floral and hunting rugs.
These weavers also made rugs for export, some incorporating European coats of arms. However, exports on a large scale began only at the end of the nineteenth century. These rugs may imitate almost any style but Turkish designs are the most common. The rugs are often made to a price with the cheapest combining jute with wool – the result being a very coarse and stiff pile.
