Origin of Mughal Carpet Designs
The tribal carpet designs mostly contain abstract motifs with bold and rusty colors. During the Mughal period, when the kings were on the battlefields. They used to live in the luxurious tents in which the floors were covered with carpets.
The carpets were never taken from the palaces because they had floral motifs. The floral motifs were not going with the decor of the tents. This is why the colors used in tribal designs were earthy & rustic. The patterns were more abstract and symbolic than artistic and floral. The symbols were painted on the outer walls of their houses, the meaning of those symbols was happiness, success, and victory.
The carpets used in the palaces had cotton warp and weft and the fringes, look very nice with artistic, floral, fine, and intricate patterns.
On the other hand, tribal carpets because of their bold patterns and rustic colors look very nice with the wool fringes. And the fine cotton was also not easily available in the tribal areas and it was the reason for not having the cotton fringes. But these carpets are still made with the wool base, maintaining the originality of the tradition.
Now, you know why these designs are still handed down and therefore they are called "THE MUGHAL TRIBAL DESIGNS".
