Pros and cons of mihrab carpet
Among the features of the mihrab prayer carpet roll, we can mention the order and distance created between the worshipers, in fact, each mihrab is for one worshiper (such as a single prayer rug) and creates better decoration and organization in mosque than non-mihrab carpets.
One of the disadvantages of the mihrab design is that it has more discrepancy than non-mihrab carpet; When weaving, a complete mihrab design should be woven, but when installing in the mosque, some of the last mihrab of the carpet should be cut.
Border mosque carpet designs
In fact, the border prayer carpet roll is the same as the side carpet, which is mostly used for spaces that have a very small width and a long length.
The difference between the border carpet of the mosque and the usual type that you see in the house or ceremonial halls is related to the margins of the carpets; In ordinary ceremonial carpets, 2 borders can be seen on its sides, while for mosque carpet rolls, only one border are considered in the carpet design.
