Carpet weaving was introduced in Kashmir by King Budshah in late 15th century. It is believed that he brought master artisans from Persia to improvise over the spinning and weaving capabilities of artisans, thus introducing the beautiful carpet weaving into the traditional arts of Kashmir. Carpet making in Kashmir is pure art and the quality depends upon the number of knots used in its making. Each carpet is woven based on a design visualized by a designer and its corresponding Talim which the weaver follows while crafting the piece of art Kashmir Box – Carpet Collection
