Antique Angora Ushak carpet

Circa 1880
390 × 318 cm 12’9” x 10’5”


A remarkable pale and gorgeous late 19th century antique Angora carpet, woven in a small town in Western Anatolia, Ushak, this type of Turkish carpet are known as Angora carpets. The late 19th century weavers came from villages outside of Ushak and employed tribal techniques. Paramount to these techniques was the use of larger knots on these carpets (sometimes less than 30 knots per square inch) and an all-wool foundation.  This is why Ushaks have a soft loose feel and their designs are more often very open.

Woven with exquisite faded pinks, peach tones, golden yellows and rare green dyes, it is perfect for a bedroom, study or drawing room looking for a subtle calm look.  In wonderful original condition, with only small areas of wear.  The majority of the carpet has a soft pile showing all over, please view all the additional images to see this rare carpets condition up close.  A highly decorative antique carpet ready to be viewed at home or in our showroom.

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 open designs and wonderful colours, thus making them easy to place in a drawing room or under a dining table.
