Mamluk carpets are characterized by their unique weave and fine wool. You will often find an array of smaller, geometric motifs. They take their name from the Mamluk dynasties that ruled Egypt from 1250 through 1517. Carpets of this design were produced in Cairo, largely for the southern European luxury trade. This Mamluk rug is a wonderful representation of a classic 16th century design.  The Mamluk Dynasty of Egypt commissioned these rugs to have classical Islamic geometric ornamentation, and many were patterned after the highly detailed tiles produced around that period of time.
