Turkish Daylights: Flying blankets

It struck me the other day while having lunch at a place near my office. Those flying blankets don’t exist back in Germany, do they? They are practical, though. What do I mean by flying blankets? I mean those kinds of fabric spun across small streets, house corners, shops, restaurants, open air markets (pazars). You can basically find them everywhere people stop by and they are meant to serve as a protection from the sun, the rain, the wind.

Is this where the oriental flying carpets cliché comes from?
