Description

This wonderful soft coloured antique Ushak carpet from Western Anatolia has just arrived with a fabulous large scale design and a muted palette.  Woven around 1890-1900 the dye palette has faded over the last 100 years to produce a really attractive decorative carpet.  Gentle green tones have been used in the large abstract floral motifs and in the main border, combined with terracotta tones, hints of orange dye too.
One of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire, Ushak designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and softer dyes are common, especially on earlier pieces.  Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs. This good condition Oushak carpet or Ushak has a good full wool pile throughout the carpet.  No significant losses or damage and ideal for any room with underlay we supply.
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.
Please request a home visit if you would like to view this antique Ushak carpet in your own home.  We love to travel and would be very happy to show you this carpet in situ and many more carpets to see which best suits your home.
