Kayseri Prayer Rug, Turkey
This image shows an old prayer rug from the famous weaving town of Kayseri in central Turkey. The rug is woven using a cotton foundation with a wool pile. Prayer rugs are very distinctive in appearance, with a ‘Mihrab’ at one end. The Mihrab represents the Mihrab on a mosque, and should be pointed towards Mecca when Muslims use the rug to pray. Prayer rugs are usually quite small so that they can be easily carried from one place to another, as Muslims will pray five times a day. Due to Islamic religion animals and humans will not be seen in prayer rugs – most will be decorated with floral and geometric patterns.
As with all hand knotted rugs, cleaning should never be attempted in the home using detergent based solutions which could compromise the dyes. Professional cleaning would be recommended to prolong the life and maintain the appearance of these wonderful pieces of floor art.
If you have a Persian rug that would benefit from a spa treatment, then why not give us a call on 01276 423 150 to get a quote and advice.
