The finest Indian carpets were made with a pile of pashmina wool and a foundation of silk, which allowed for hundreds of knots to be tied per square inch. This rug pattern features intricate details and intensely colored design elements with scrolling vines from which bloom palmettes, poppies, irises and serrated lancet leaves. The original rug is from Northern India, mid-17th century.
