Louis XV Aubusson Rugs

Hi Everyone,

I have a set of five Aubusson rugs for you.  These are 5 x 3 in size and entitled "Louis XV Aubusson Rugs".

Aubusson rugs date back to the Renaissance period in the town of Aubusson, located on the banks of the River Creuse in the Creuse valley of central France, about 200 miles from Paris.  The first looms were likely set up in Aubusson in the 1300's by Flemish refugees, but tapestry and rug production did not begin there until the 16th century.

Aubusson rugs' history is rich and a significant part of the revival of the arts of the Renaissance period.  They were hand woven flat wave wool rugs and tapestries originally based on Turkish designs.  In 1665 and thereafter, Aubusson rug designs were based on the motifs of Savonnerie rugs.  Savonnerie rugs were only availabe to the King, with design and production overseen by the artists and weavers of the royal courts.  With Aubusson rug designs mimicking those of Soavonnerie rugs, the became available to anyone who could afford them, typically the upper class and sophisticated aristocracy of Europe.

As always, hope you enjoy!

These rugs are beautiful! Are they recolorable? I'm guessing not.

Hey Anonymous.......I'm glad you like them! I will be doing more here soon. Unfortunately they are not recolorable. I could have made them recolorable, but I did not want to loose the detail on them. Thanks again, hope to see you soon!
