Carpet weaving in Europe has been started in Spain since the 12th century, under the influence of the Islamic art. It continued in Ireland, France, England and Romania inspired by the designs and weaving techniques of the Persian and ottoman rugs. The establishment of the Aubusson factory in 1665 and the Savonnerie in 1680 under the command of Henry IV of France, caused new designs with French, Dutch and Flanders ornamentation. The designs of these two factories have a great influence on the designs of all over Europe. European carpets are a mixture of Eastern and Western patterns and you can be the host of this amazing mixture in your home.
