The workshops of Cairo, under the control of the Mameluke dynasty produced rugs and carpets between 1252 and 1517. A very individual design had been created, known as the Mameluke carpet. Today these are extremely rare but easily recognisable due to the busy field which is filled with various geometric figures. The designs include rhombuses, circles, squares and octagonal shapes all of differing sizes to create a typical kaleidoscopic effect. In the most common layout, the figures rotate around a central medallion formed also with many geometric shapes of differing sizes. The colours are bright but few, restricted mainly to reds, blues and greens. These carpets were made until the Ottoman conquest circa 1517.
