Melas Rug

2743 Melas 3ft 6 in x 4ft 9in (1.07 x 1.45 m)


Melas is a town in the south-western coastal region of  Turkey, by the Aegean that is known for producing some of the most interesting of Anatolian prayer rugs.  The relatively short cropped weave and imaginative use of color make Melas carpets a collector favorite.

A traditional prayer design made more interesting by the designs surrounding the arch, as well as the use of a very attractive shade of light green.
