Yahyali

Yahyali prayer and medallion designs are woven, as well as garden (“mazarlik”, or “graveyard”) designs. Pale turquois blue, pale green and rose colours are prevalent. Rugs from Ortaköy show a hexagonal central ornament, often including a cruciform pattern. The borders show stylized carnations arranged in a row of square compartments. Mucur carpets often show a stepped “prayer niche within a prayer niche” design, with contrasting bright madder red and light indigo colours separated by yellow outlines. The borders are composed of rows of squares filled with geometric diamond or rhomboid patterns. Mucur and Kirsehir are also known for ther multiple-niche prayer rugs, or “saph”.
