This hand knotted pile rug is made using 100% natural dyes and handspun wool. This striking rug has the distinct design and colors of a classical Mamluk rug. The Mamluk Sultans (who ruled over Egypt from the 13th to the 16th century) were patrons of the arts and commissioned many fine rugs. Mamluk rugs with their unique geometric designs are equally well suited for contemporary or traditional interiors. This rug is an absolute gem!
