This prayer kilim, with a muted color palate, is a typical example from Eastern Turkey. The borders are filled with a series of abstract geopmetric motifs, among which the multilayered X's on the top and bottom border are prominent. The pointed arch is outlined on the borrom with a double-hook design and the upper part is decorated in the latchhook motif, both of which are common in this type of kilim.
