Tulipmania Art Journal

A collection of remarkable facts about tulips

Although the tulip arrived to the Netherlands from the Ottoman Empire, the passion for this special flower reached its peak in the Ottoman Empire only 80 years after the tulip mania shook up the Netherlands.

This period of incredible love for the tulip at the court of Sultan Ahmed III is called Lale Devri – the tulip era. It was a relatively short and peaceful period, famous by a special fondness of the high-class society for the tulip, which became synonymous to status, nobility and privilege and was traded for exorbitant prices.
