Decorative rugs made in and around the city of Kula in western Anatolia. Kula also produced prayer rugs throughout the 19th century and into the 20th and have been favourites among collectors. Usually the arch is straight sided, the columnar sides of the prayer niche may appear as broad, ribbon like pendant forms. Most carpets woven in this region are much smaller, and oversize examples such as this carpet seldom seen. This semi antique Kula rug is the excellent culmination of history, tradition and human touch.
