Antique Oushak rugs were woven in Anatolia since the beginning of the Ottoman Empire.
Antique Oushak carpets are in high demand today as highly decorative pieces. They come in central medallion designs as well as patterns of smaller allover medallions or scattered sprays of vine scroll and palmettes. They are notable for the grand, monumental scale of the designs, often a subdued palette in soft tones whose pleasing qualities are enhanced by their particularly soft and lustrous wool. This Oushak rug consists of a light pastel color palette of pink, ivory and light yellow colors, along with a distinctive floral medallion.
Although the Oushak rugs are made using less complicated methods, they are extremely decorative in nature. Their larger scale patterns along with their soft and decorative coloration make these rugs extremely sought after by the trend-setters in the interior design trade.
