Antique Angora Ushak carpet

Circa 1890
375 × 225 cm 12’3” x 7’4”


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 faded light greens, pinks and sandy tone dyes, it is perfect for a bedroom, study or drawing room looking for a subtle calm look.  In good original condition, with small areas of wear.  The majority of the carpet has a soft pile showing all over, please view all the additional images to see the condition up close.  A wonderful antique decorative carpet.

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.

We love to travel all over the UK and would be very happy to show you this carpet in situ and many more carpets to see which best suits your home.
