Aubusson Rugs

The History of Aubusson Rugs

In the year 1600, in a small town called Aubusson, weavers had begun to create carpets which is known as Aubusson rugs and tapestries for royal castles. In the mid-1700s when French crown lent support to Aubusson rug weavers, the industry flourished. The King commissioned the most famous architects and designers to create works of art which would be reinterpreted in woven form; as such monarch came to power, new designs reflected the style and pastimes of the era. Named after the town of their birth, these handwoven flat-weave carpets, having the image of fruits, flowers, architectural elements, and musical instruments, became known as Aubusson Rugs.
