Kilim prayer rug, around 1880.
The red is made of cochineal, scale insect. A purplish red.
The red ornament in the yellow centre field looks like a diabolo and is centuries old, it brings protection and luck.
This is something to hang on the wall as an object.
A little damage is simply normal.
Authentic prayer rug, also used as such for years.
