Beautiful Collection Of Antique Egyptian Rugs and Carpets

Antique Egyptian Rugs - Ottoman workshops produced a variety of carpet designs with familiar elements of flowers, palmettes, lotuses, medallions, arabesques, cloud bands. Rugs will all-wool construction thought to come from Cairo--established rug-weaving center when conquered by the Ottomans in 1517. Mamluk rugs have a limited palette of colors, geometric patterned design and used the Senneh or Persian knot.

Among the lesser known antique rug centers of the world is Egypt, but lesser known does not equate to lesser in terms of quality, color, design, and historical robustness. Perhaps Egyptian rugs remain inconspicuous in the world of antique rugs because Egypt lies in the shadow of some of the world's rug producing giants of yesterday and today (Persia and Turkey for two). Regardless, Egyptian rugs, particularly those woven in Cairo during the 16th and 17th centuries, are some of the most beautiful rugs ever woven given their unique and lively color palette and ancient design motifs.
