Prayer Rugs produced in Mucur share much in common with those of Kirsehir probably because both cities are in the same province. The designs and compositions are also based on those of Ladik rugs. The first examples of this type from Mucur are dated from the end of the 17th century. Briefly they can be characterized as follows. The finely stepped prayer niche in several contours is either single or on oppsite ends of the rug. There is a crescent at the top. A flower or leaf motif appears in the center, as do hanging lamps. Small flowers hang down from the sides or in the center. The prayer niche is plain except occasionally there is a square medallion in the center. Ever designs and half lozenge decorations on the alinlik and geomecric motif are remarkably reminiscent of those on Ladik rugs. Usually bright colors are used with purple as the characteristic color complimented by three shades of red and blue, yellow, black, white and a touch of green. Multiple-niche prayer rugs bearing much the same characteristics as those above were also produced in Mucur.
