Mamluk Carpet (NOA master weavers, India) - Traditional Rugs and Textiles
Mamluk Carpet (NOA master weavers, India)W8'-2" x10'-3"Hand woven of virgin, New Zealand wool; extremely high thread count.
Mamluk carpets are produced by NOA master weavers from the Republic of India. These pieces are functionally intended for both religious and secular, residential contexts. Stylistically, Mamluk carpets generally entail a central component that projects outward from the rug’s center. From that point, other, sub-divided shapes related to the central component are integrated throughout. This specific carpet stuns the eye with its poetic symmetry and relational colors. Employing permanent vegetable dyes, this piece is also distinguished by its extremely high thread count - 144 knots per square inch. The process of stylizing and preserving the form of such cloths requires a deep knowledge of craft as transmitted via oral tradition through centuries.
