More about the provenance Amritsar | India

The city of Amritsar is located at the border to Pakistan and it is a holy city of the Sikhs. The name has its origin in "Amrita Saras" which means "holy pond". It is the name of the sea in the holy Golden Temple of the Sikhs. Amritsar gained importance as a carpet producing area in the year of 1840. Carpet makers from Kashmir brought their traditional techniques and designs to Amritsar. Therefore Amritsar rugs were made using Kashmir technique and first class wool. The designs mostly follow the Indo-Iranian tradition.
