The Indian Agra large carpet / area rug, boasting a design intricacy surpassing even the renowned Persian Ziegler's, their top competitor in the realm of luxury room-sized carpets.
This exceptional piece hails from the Jailbird collection, the sole reproduction capturing the essence of original late 1800s Agra carpets.
The inspiration behind the Jailbird Collection stemmed from an enlightening exhibition in London during the 1980s, where a pair of astute antique carpet dealers recognized the growing demand for these grandiose designs. However, accessibility was limited to the affluent due to the rarity and high value of original antique Agra's. Determined to make luxury more accessible, one of the dealers journeyed to India, seeking out a seasoned artisan who had once mastered the original Agra weaving techniques. Together, they meticulously resurrected the unique weave that defines Agra carpets, resulting in the creation of the Jailbird Collection.
The name "Jailbird" pays homage to the speculated origins of these designs, believed to have been woven by incarcerated artisans in Agra, Amritsar, and Jaipur. As these skilled craftsmen were relocated, the designs would have migrated, blurring the lines of their exact provenance.

Adorned in a captivating palette of reds, golds, and subtle ivory highlights, all encased by a pea green border, this rug exudes an unparalleled elegance that enriches any space it inhabits.
