(Pronounced Cahn Mahm-dee)
Khan Mamdi carpets have their roots in the regional nomadic tribal culture. Historically, they would have been knotted with naturally dyed hand spun yarn, but today they are almost entirely knotted from commercially-produced dye and machine-spun wool.
Bold geometric and
stylistically floral designs.
Reflecting their historical traditions, Khan Mamdi rugs are constructed on horizontal looms with 100% wool on a wool warp and weft. Khan Mamdi rugs stand out for their bold geometric and stylistically floral designs in rusts, reds, blues and greens.
