I do not think the shops in Mumbai sell Persian carpets. Last December I bought a beautiful silk/wool Persian style carpet that was woven in kashmir from Ranee international located at the lobby of the trident hotel in south Mumbai. They have been at the same location since I have been visiting India in the early 1970's. I chose the carpet, signed it at the back and they shipped it to me in Los Angeles.

Carpet weaving is not indigenous to Kashmir. It was introduced from Persia and received great impetus under the Mughals. The designs continue to be Persian, but with local influences and changes. From its purely Persian origins, the Kashmiri carpet has evolved, taking on the flora and fauna and themes of India, to become a uniquely beautiful Indian product.

Many of the carpets you think of as Oriental may be from Turkey, Iran or Pakistan. The designs differ greatly and are typical of the region from which they come.

In India you will find Kashmiri and other locally made rugs. If you plan to buy a new rug, check prices at home to get a sense of what they are and the types of designs that are typical.

Silk rugs are more for display than for use. When buying wool pile, look at the back to see how fine the knotting is.

Unless you know carpets, be very, very careful with older rugs.
