Place of origin
Contemporary aesthetics meets oriental tradition: we were inspired by the traditional pattern of the Egyptian Mamlouk rugs when creating this Neo Mamlouk.
br /> The traditional Mamlouks (more rarely also Mamluk) rugs were knotted mainly in Egypt in the 15th century and can be found today almost exclusively in museums. Our Neo Mamlouk rugs are a new interpretation of the classical pattern. The classic Mamlouk pattern consists of numerous different geometric shapes and geometricized, floral motifs that give the rug a kaleidoscopic effect.
We have modified the traditional pattern templates, reduced the pattern and, in particular, completely rearranged the color scheme. The result is a fusion of traditional oriental rug designs and modern European aesthetics. We try to cater to the trends of European interior design with our Neo Mamlouks, and in doing so, we playfully go around the guidelines of traditional rug knotting.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Neo Mamlouk. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.
In the middle of the central field of this Neo Mamlouk is the symmetrical center, also called medallion. The design of the field is arranged in such a way that it gives the impression that the medallion is floating on the field.
The pattern, inspired by classical oriental embellishments, gives the impression that this hand-knotted rug has a long history. The pattern looks as if it has been washed out or faded and therefore almost abstract. In fact, this Neo Mamlouk is of course new and part of the latest generation of contemporary rug designs. It is a bridge between modern designs and interiors and classic oriental motifs. The pattern is subtle yet present.
Some areas of the design have a higher pile than other parts of this rug. The patterns of modern rugs tend to be simpler and more abstract. The play with different pile heights is new and has replaced more elaborate and bold patterns. As a result of the two-dimensional highlighting of the pattern, the rug does not look boring at all. This accentuation is extraordinary and has a unique effect.
The background of this Neo Mamlouk is light gray. The colors blue gray and light gray dominate the overall impression.
The pile of this Neo Mamlouk is made of a durable mixture of wool and viscose. Viscose also acetate silk or rayon is generally obtained from the natural product of cellulose, in other words from the raw material, wood. In India the cellulose mass is obtained from bamboo. In an elaborate process, the pulpy cellulose is pulled into a continuous textile yarn. This is why viscose is also referred to as the continuous filament yarn. Because of the silky sheen of the yarn, viscose obtained from bamboo is also called "Bamboo Silk". The colloquially used designation "artificial silk" is not permitted under the German Textile Labelling Act TKG. The weft and warp threads of this Neo Mamlouk are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
