Magnificent Mamluk - Egyptian Indian Wool Rug - Oriental Carpet - 9' x 11'10" ft.

Size:  9′ x 11’10” ft. – Finely woven, made in India!

The Mamluk Dynasty, originally “slave-soldiers” of Turkic descent, came to power in Egypt in the mid thirteenth century. By the fifteenth century they had established a thriving carpet industry in their capital, Cairo.

Many examples of these Malmuk carpets have been preserved. Their designs are quite complex, consisting of large medallions made up of intersecting compartments of various forms adapted from the great tradition of Islamic geometric ornament.The borders consisted of oblong medallions or cartouches. The smaller details of Mamluk carpets, however, relate closely to contemporary Ottoman Turkish Carpets, no doubt reflecting the close commercial and cultural ties that existed between both realms. Mamluk carpets are distinguished not only by their distinctive designs, but also by their lustrous wool, fine weave and soft, closely valued coloration dominated by pale greens, yellows and reds.

Brand new! As shown in pictures.
