Large Sized Wool Overdyed 10x18 Turkish Rug
This rug makes a grand statement while still remaining elegant and timeless.
Ushak rugs and carpets, also spelled Oushak, are a style of rug that has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity within interior design during past decade. However, the aesthetic of the modern Oushak rug design actually originate in the 19th Century. While the areas around Istanbul have been known for producing rugs and carpets of high quality since the 15th Century, during the late Ottoman period the designs began to show a distinctly Persian influence with larger floral shapes combined with a usage of softer, more pastel like color palettes. The open motifs are said to foster as feeling of calmness often accentuated by these color choices. Often employing a larger knot and a silky luxurious wool and Angora blend, these rugs bring a casual formality and are often designed with larger rooms in mind.
These larger rugs are becoming harder and harder to find and we felt extremely lucky to have sourced this one. The classic design is elegant and timeless as well as working well with modern clean lines seen in interior design that want to add a light wash of color and pattern to a classic.
We are proud to feature Oushaks from Anadol Rugs. Anadol is unique in that they are the only manufacturer of Oushak rugs with a geographic patent from the Turkish Government authenticating their Oushaks as being produced in the city of the same name. Much like Champagne and Bourbon, only these rugs can be called true Ushaks.
