The Emperor Shah Jahan founded the tradition of weaving Mughal rugs. He was a conqueror of many lands and the driving force behind construction of the Taj Mahal. The Mughal Empire that birthed these rugs is so synonymous with wealth and success, that the contemporary word "mogul," meaning a powerful, successful person, is derived from it.

As years went on, influences from other cultures seeped into the Mughal rug design aesthetic. In particular, the painterly florals of Europe and architectural lattice work of Italy have become part of the design scheme. A Muslim religious influence shows up in the ornate prayer rugs of the period with the inclusion of geometric patterns, stars, and traditional Islamic symbolism.
