Aubusson is a city on the river Creuse in the centre of France. It has been known for its rugs since the fifteenth century. Antique Aubusson tapestries are some of the most elegant and luxurious antique floor coverings. The exact date on which Aubusson tapestries were first manufactured is unknown. Having said that, examples of Aubusson rugs with Rococo designs led most of us in the field to speculate that manufacturing probably started in the middle of the eighteenth century, when the taste for Oriental rugs started shifting in favour of European design.
