The Rich Artistic Heritage of the Mamluke Rug

At Twickenham Rug Company, we take immense pride in our exclusive collection of Mamluke rugs. These rugs are renowned for their rich history and exquisite craftsmanship. The Mamluke rug features complex geometric patterns and vibrant colours. It originates from a tradition dating back to the Mamluke period in Egypt, a time when art and architecture flourished.

A Legacy Woven into Each Thread
