Comes from Amritsar (meaning "the lake of immortality" in Sanskrit), a city in Punjab in the northwest of India, near the Kashmir region. The weavers of this city's tradition created unique textiles in part because they had not developed a distinctive style of rug-weaving as early as other Indian counterparts. While regions of southern and western India began weaving Oriental-influenced indian carpets. During the Mughal era, the weavers of Amritsar took their direction from the sensibilities of the West.
