This Majidiyah Ghiordes rug is a masterpiece with it's high quality weaving and extra ordinary design. Majidiyah Ghiordes rugs are made after the special request of Ottoman Sultan Abdulmajid(rug got the name from the Sultan) to be given as gifts to European diplomats and that is why these Majidiyah rugs are made for the European taste rather than Typical Turkish style. The floral center part of the rug and European patterns all over the rug is a proof of that. These rugs were produced in very limited numbers and it is very hard to find one today due to their rarity. Even thou on late 1980's some weavers tried to remake these Majidiyah rugs, they were just unsuccesful copies of these original Majidiyah Ghiordes rugs made in Ottoman era.
