This Afghani rug features a Mamluk design, known for its tribal style. With a putty background and a turquoise border, this rug showcases a unique combination of colors that adds a touch of vibrancy to any space. Made with wool on cotton, this new rug is crafted with high-quality materials for durability and long-lasting beauty.

The Mamluk design has a rich history dating back to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. While there is some debate about its exact origins, it is widely believed to have originated in Cairo, Egypt. Mamluk carpets were used not only as interior decorations in residential and religious structures but also for processions, where they lined the streets. The design of these carpets typically consists of geometric motifs, with dominant colors of red, accented by blues, yellows, and greens.

This rug, specifically, is reminiscent of the Mamluk style with its distinct composition of interlacing stars and polygons, radiating outwards from a central component. The outer borders are lined with medallions alternating with oval cartouches, giving the rug a captivating aesthetic. With a size of 9'9" x 12'10", it is perfect for larger rooms or living spaces.

The craftsmanship of this rug is exceptional, with many skilled weavers involved in its production. The wool used in creating this rug is sourced from the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its high-quality and long-staple wool. It is then hand carded and spun into carpet yarn in Herat, on the western side of Afghanistan. The rug is woven on traditional floor looms in the weavers' homes, utilizing an asymmetrical "Persian" knot technique.

This rug boasts a knot count of 162 knots per square inch, which translates to a remarkable 2,906,127 individually hand-tied knots in total. The meticulous attention to detail and high knot count contribute to the rug's durability and longevity.

Whether you're a rug enthusiast or simply looking to enhance your living space with a unique piece, this Afghani Mamluk rug is a fantastic choice. Its rich history, captivating design, and superior craftsmanship make it a standout addition to any home or office setting. Rediscover the beauty and elegance of traditional rug weaving with this exceptional Afghani Mamluk rug.
