Description

An amazing early antique Ushak carpet, with the most delightful palette of natural dyes.  The faded greens work so well with the muted pink to apricot background colour, off-whites and rich yellow tones complete the colours.  Woven with a very open drawing with nice symmetry to the design, hand-woven around 1880 by skilled Turkish weavers in Ushak, Western Anatolia.

. . .

Ushaks were woven in Western Anatolia which was one of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire.  Their designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and soft dyes are not uncommon.  Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs.  This Anatolian carpet has an almost contemporary feel to it and would work in a modern space as well as traditional.  We clean every carpet before offering it for sale and make sure the ends and fringes are secured.  A decorative subtle piece ideal for a soft scheme.

Ushak rugs and carpets were woven in the Anatolian highlands south of Istanbul where they used extremely soft wool and using the larger turkish knot made them weave more open designs than Persian carpets. They are increasingly desirable today due to their sometimes softer palette than persian carpets, thus making them easy to place in a drawing room or under a dining table.
