  • See Petsopoulos, “Kilims”, pp. 192-197, “The band kilims of Malatya”. He mentions that these kilims have been found in mosques where presumably their design served to create the prayer niche or “saf”.


  • This rug could be put on the floor in a low traffic area but was mounted on linen so it could be hung and enjoyed on the wall.
