Introducing our unique and meticulously crafted Afghan Mamluk Tribal Rug. This stunning piece features a distinctive design that originated in Afghanistan, showcasing the rich history and traditional artistry of the Mamluk carpets.

Mamluk carpets were produced from the late fifteenth century to the middle of the sixteenth century and were initially attributed to Damascus, Syria. However, evidence points to Cairo, Egypt as the true center of production. These carpets served both religious and residential purposes, adorning interiors of mosques and homes alike. They were also used in grand processions, lining the streets to create a majestic display.

Our Afghan Mamluk Tribal Rug embodies the essence of this historical art form with its vibrant red background and celadon border, creating a striking contrast. The use of mainly red tones, along with hints of blues, yellows, and greens, adds depth and character to the overall design. Crafted with wool on cotton, this new rug boasts durability and longevity.

This Afghan Mamluk rug measures 12'0" X 15'10", making it an ideal statement piece to anchor any room. With a knots per square inch (KPSI) of 162, this rug showcases the meticulous craftsmanship involved, boasting a total of 4,412,902 hand-tied knots. These rugs are primarily woven in the Karam Kul district of Andkhoi, where skilled weavers known for higher knot counts excel in their artistry.

What truly sets this rug apart is its all-natural dye. The beautiful red hue is derived from madder root, a plant that has been used for centuries as a dyeing agent. Madder root dyes offer a range of warm and cool red, orange, pink, and brown shades, adding a natural and earthy element to this exquisite piece.

With its intricate geometric motifs and interlacing stars and polygons, our Afghan Mamluk Tribal Rug reflects the authentic style and traditional designs that have captivated rug enthusiasts for centuries. Whether displayed in a modern or traditional setting, this rug is sure to make a bold and timeless statement.
