Mucur is a town in the Kırshehir Province in the Central Anatolia that was well regarded for weaving rugs with beautiful natural dyes in the village homes. The characteristic design in older examples, from the 19th century, is a prayer niche with a stepped arch crowned by a little turret form that is echoed in the crenellations of a narrow cross panel above. The niche is soft red, pale yellow, or green and may contain a skeleton tree or be perfectly plain except for an edging of small triangular indentations. The green spandrels (spaces between the exterior curves of the arch and the enclosing right angle) display stylized ewers. The broad stripe of the border is composed of varicoloured, carefully detailed squares, reminiscent of tilework, and the soft-blue inner stripe has a diamond pattern.

As lifestyles modernised rug weaving ceased and now quality Mucur rugs are highly sort after by collectors .
