The Turkish rug from the mid-century features stylized floral motifs in the main border, with regular patterns and a sense of balance. The central border is adorned with flowers, creating a lively and dynamic atmosphere. Although larger than typical prayer rugs, this rug still carries elements that associate it with prayer. This is evident through the presence of urns or jugs scattered throughout the centre, symbolizing ablution, and the preparation of foot-washing before prayer.

While the rug has experienced some wear and tear over time, it has undergone minor restoration on the sides, ends, and field. The skilled craftsmanship of the weaver is evident in the continuous flow of colours incorporated throughout the rug, demonstrating their artistic talent. Despite its imperfections, the rug retains its inherent beauty and charm.
