Description

Beautiful antique Ushak carpet with delicate pale colours, soft pinks and muted reds, oranges and grey tones.  The pile is very good on this wool carpet with only minimal lower areas of pile.  No major losses to the ends or side/selvedges, as far as decorative carpets go this one would be very easy to live with.  Ushak carpets are wonderful to place in a variety of rooms, this piece especially as it has no central motif but a muted all over floral design.

 It could be used in a bedroom, drawing room or in a contemporary space.

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.
