The Victoria & Albert Karagashli Prayer Rug

The Victoria & Albert Karagashli Prayer Rug

Karagashli prayer rugs are very rare. In the 2,045 Caucasian prayer rugs in Ralph Kaffel's data base only 5 were Karagashli. This one was purchased in 1880 from Vincent Robinson of Wigmore Street, London UK. by the Victoria & Albert Museum. one interesting point is that the rug has some wear and restoration indicating it was not new when purchased by the V&A.

Warp: brown and white wool; z3s, 2 brown threads and one white. 14 threads per inch

Weft: white cotton z4s, 2 shoots, average 11 knots per inch.

Knot: wool symmetrical, average 154 KPSI

Ends: lower incomplete 1/2 in plainweave with white cotton weft. evidence of a fringe with bands of off-set knotting. Upper; incomplete 1 in plainweave with white cotton followed by a narrow band blue wool weft, evidence of a fringe with off-set knotting. some restoration.
