Anatolian rugs are hand knotted in the Central Anatolia or Asia Minor region of Turkey. The patterns are from Ottoman era as well as modern Turkey. The central medallion used in this rug symbolizes the central authority of the Ottoman Sultans. The natural dyes used in this rug are obtained from vegetables such as red onion skins and eggplant peel, etc. The soft wool is obtained from the chest of a lamb where it's softer because of the minimal sun exposure.

Smaller rugs have been woven to be used as prayer rugs as well. This is a good example of a double niche prayer rug. The prayer rug is supposed to face the Holy Land in Saudi Arabia due to Muslim tradition. Multiple layers of the niche is formed in a staircase which represents the ultimate goal of ascension to heaven.
