Oushak Rug

 /  Products  /  Oushak Rug

Created in Western Turkey, antique Oushak (or Ushak) rugs are known for their distinct features such as an angular large-scale floral design. They tend to display a calm, tame look. Present-day Oushak carpet producers create some of the most wonderful contemporary rugs that capture the feel and aesthetic of their original counterparts.

Oushak rugs had a humble beginning just south of Istanbul, Turkey. Their namesake comes from their place of true origin, Oushak. The Oushak carpet is considered to be Persian-influenced, unlike most Turkish rugs. The town of Oushak has been considered to be a grand production center for Turkish rugs ever since the 15th century-- before that, Oushak rugs were made by nomads for their necessities.
