Egypt
Egypt is located in North Africa. The capital of Egypt is Cairo. Egypt gained its independence from the British Empire in 1922. Early Egyptian rug weaving can be divided into the two periods of Mamluks and Ottomans. Even though the contemporary Egyptian rugs are of great quality, only a small number of them are exported. If we travel to Cairo today, we will see many small local rug shops trying to attract the tourists.

Ensi
A rug used in place of a door or curtain in a Turkoman tent.
