Magic tapestry is carpets that will fly the passengers sitting on them to various places, even to hard-to-reach places. It is thought that magic tapestries were first mentioned in Persian legends around the 9th century.
Until now, magic tapestry has appeared in many legends. Among them, in the war stories of King Frahat II of the Parthian Empire, the stories of 1001 Nights, and even newer works of art such as the adventure stories of Asterix and Obelix.
Since the 13th century, broomsticks have been synonymous with witches’ vehicles. According to legend, witches chose a broom as a vehicle because it was easy to disguise by placing it with other household items.
