Your article was very interesting, as were the responses in the discussions. When my husband escaped from Bulgaria, he spent two years in Turkey and he can agree that he never saw anyone praying on a carpet. Crossing the Bosphorous, the boats had plywood pieces leaning against the sides which would be used as mats. No doubt, as mentioned in the discussions, the wealthy would have owned beauties for themselves, but we have no choice but to keep calling anything with that arch a prayer rug.
