The weave on Oushak rugs is generally rather coarse using bigger knotting than Persian rugs, as the wool is extremely soft the pile height is medium high on this rug.  A wonderful decorative antique rug ideal for many rooms. Oushak rugs or Ushak depending on the spelling preference, 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 bright rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs.
