“Life should be a continual celebration, a festival of lights the whole year round. Only then can you grow, can you blossom." - Osho
Greatly influenced by the Persian style, Mughals were great builders and contributors to art, culture and architecture to the lands they conquered, reaching a peak during the reign of Shah Jahan in the 16th century, it’s most magnificent achievement being The Taj Mahal - a sign of pure love and dedication.
Known for their precision in symmetry, Mughals celebrated a deep sense of uniformity in all aspects of arts. With a high regard for structure, most designs were built on squares and circles, repeated and layered to create complex intricate patterns. This influence greatly reflected in their textiles as well.
