A stunning, room-sized Afghan Mamluk Carpet hand knotted in lustrous wool. The rug showcases a magnificent star medallion surrounded by bottehs, with smaller oval lozenges woven through the central area. The rug is adorned with floral detailing, and its iconic geometric design makes this piece highly distinctive.
Mamluk Carpets originally come from Egypt many hundreds of years ago, with their grand designs still popular today. Afghan weavers have continued their traditions, taking influence from these original Egyptian pieces (traceable back to the 16th century). The highest grade of wool is used to ensure the fineness and complexity of the design is preserved. This Mamluk Carpet uses sky blue and vibrant red colours contrasted with cream and soft, darker green tones to accentuate the intricate pattern within the piece.
A truly show-stopping rug, this Afghan Mamluk Carpet would be the talking point of any space in which it was featured! A rug such as this may even have an entire room designed around its colours and patternation, regardless of whether it was a classic or more contemporary setting.
