The origin of carpets weaving traditions in India comes in the medieval period. When Mughal Emperor Babar came to India, he was disappointed by the lack of luxuries here. He missed the luxuries of Persia which included the Persian carpet and thus brought Persian carpets to India. A Persian rug is a heavy textile, made for a wide variety of utilitarian and symbolic purpose.
