Caucasian prayer rugs are generally small weavings with a directional motif, usually in the form of an arch or mihrab, which is intended to point the faithful towards Mecca. One of the most popular types of carpets among collectors, they are prized for their highly sophisticated weaving technique, their rich colours and their stylized geometric designs.

A prayer rug or prayer mat is a piece of fabric, sometimes a pile carpet, used by Muslims, placed between the ground and the worshipper for cleanliness during the various positions of Islamic prayer. These involve prostration and sitting on the ground. A Muslim must perform wudu (ablution) before prayer, and must pray in a clean place. Many new prayer mats are manufactured by weavers in a factory. The design of a prayer mat is based on the village it came from and its weaver.

Caucasian prayer rugs are generally small weavings with a directional motif, usually in the form of an arch or "mihrab", which is intended to point the faithful towards Mecca. One of the most popular types of carpets among collectors, they are prized for their highly sophisticated weaving technique, their rich colours and their stylized geometric designs. Taking an aesthetic approach to the study of these rugs, this book also places them in their historical context, and includes an essay by Jim Dixon which addresses the fundamental issue of the meaning of the designs to those who made and used the carpets.
