The first prayer rugs were made in Ushak, Turkey during the 16th century. Also called Bellini rugs, after the Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini. They are decorated with the usual mihrab, within which is a medallion. They can be recognised by the keyhole design at the bottom end of the rug. This design also bears a small medallion. The layout of the prayer rug also appears in the so-called double-niche prayer rugs which have a mihrab at both ends. These are also known as Tintoretto rugs, named after another Venetian artist. The mihrab is used to position the rug in the direction of Mecca whilst praying. Mecca is known as the holiest city in Islam and is situated in Saudi Arabia.
