Egyptian Court Carpets
Some wonderful court carpets have survived from the sixteenth/seventeenth century. To the left is an example of an Egyptian Mamluk court carpet woven in the sixteenth century. The Mamluk carpets are thought to have been woven in Cairo but this cannot be proven. The earliest pieces date from the fifteenth century through to the seventeenth century. During this time the designs changed from geometric to overall floral patterns using the same colour palette. The floral design change came about due to a fashionable trend started in the Ottoman courts in Turkey. Unlike Persian and Turkish court carpets the Mamluk rugs had little influence on later weaving. They remain a mysterious, highly skilled group of weavers about which a great deal is not known.
