"Aubusson rugs get there name from the village of Aubusson France, located on the banks of the Creuse river, just 200 miles from Paris. Here it was believed that the Moors had brought the art form of tapestry weaving from as early as the 13th Century. It was not until the French Decorative Arts Movement of the 17th century that carpet workshop centers started to flourish. Artisans inspired by the Royal Savonnerie Factory, would be commissioned by the nouveau riche to create hand painted renderings know as cartouches Once approved dye masters and weavers would engage for many months bringing the Artist vision to life ,thus the end result ….a durable, functional ,fashionable work of art. Recreated today in China with the assistance of French Artisans with Family lineage in carpet production... ModRen Rugs has been able to recapture the historic glory of this under appreciated art form while preserving the integrity of its original centuries old hand woven technique."
