Transylvanian carpets and prayer rugs are named after the region of Transylvania, as the name suggests. Transylvania, back in the 17th century was an Ottoman province and where these rugs were found in abundance. However, it is commonly thought that these rugs were woven in the Anatolian city of Bergama, from which they were exported. The carpets were small in size and rarely had a single-niche design but generally displayed a double-niche mihrab layout. It has therefore become common use to apply the name Transylvanian to a particular type of double-niche mihrab prayer rug. These rugs are also heavily influenced by the antique Ushak prayer rugs.
