Rug of the Month January 2016 – the Tibey Lost Mamluk
As rug of the Month in January 2016, we present a brand new design from our very popular Tibey Collection. Characteristic for this collection is the special loop and cut knotting technique: The rugs are knotted alternately in woolen and silk lines, but only the silk lines are cut, while the woolen lines stay closed (loop).
The exclusive material combination of high-quality Himalayan highland wool and finest silk provides a very elegant appearance of this particular designer rug. Learn more about this wonderful designer rug.
Popular Mamluk Design, Almost 700 Years Old
The Tibey Lost Mamluk shows the popular Mamluk design that originates almost 700 years ago in Egypt. Characteristic of this special design are the patterns in geometric structure: The main element is a central medallion, which consists of an octagon, a square and a diamond, which are put on top of each other. This interaction creates the impression of an eight-pointed star.
The Lost Mamluk is a Tibey reverse, this means that in this rug the actual design lays as closed woolen line in the background, overlaid by the cut silk line. Therefore, the design has got a very discreet appearance – the famous Mamluk design shows only slightly irregular through the light blue silk line.
Despite its ancient design, the Tibey Lost Mamluk presents itself very modern due to its reduced, very decorative colors. Thanks to the irregular overlap of the silk line, the design disappears in the background – that is the reason for the design name "Lost Mamluk". The soft colour gradients and the discreet vintage look, resulting from the loop and cut structure, provide a changing appearance of this decorative rug, which actually depends on the angle of view.
A while ago, we have presented a Mamluk designer rug form an other collection – please have a look at our rug of the month September 2014.
