A beautiful Afghan Mamluk Rug in an unusually small size, hand-knotted in excellent quality wool. The rug features a grand star medallion with smaller octagonal medallions present throughout the central design. There are hundreds of floral details woven within this rug, and its geometric style is what makes rugs of this type so distinctive.
Mamluk Carpets originated in Egypt hundreds and hundreds of years ago, and their designs have lived on until this day. Afghan weavers have continued this tradition by taking influence from these original designs (some of which date back to the 16th century) and use very soft and lustrous wool to bring out the complex detailing of these rugs. This Mamluk Rug uses vibrant red and blue colours contrasted with cream and soft blue hues to create a bold and intricate work of textile art.
Mamluk Rugs are standout pieces and sit well in spaces as a focal point for everyone to enjoy! It is not unusual to see rooms designed around a Mamluk Rug because of their distinctive look and quality.
