Description

An antique Ushak carpet with very pale colours and minimal almost European design. 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.  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.  The condition is good, with a lush soft wool pile which we have cleaned and 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.

We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire the UK & Europe by appointment.
