Mughal

Indian carpet making first appeared as an art from during the Mughal dynasty, when Akbar, The mughal ruler from 1556-1605, set up workshops in Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, and Lahore, with artists and weavers from the Persian court.
Originally, carpets were woven to Safavid Persian court designs, but soon the Mughal court designers developed a distinctive style of their own, and these designs have remained influenced to this day.
