Antique Turkish Oushak Rug uses a unique family of motifs, and they are manufactured city of Uşak, Turkey – which is one of the larger towns in Western Anatolia. Usak, was a major center of rug production from the early days of the Ottoman Empire,(which dates back to the 15th Century), and continues into the early 20th century.
The late 19th century saw the renewal of Oriental rug production, at this time Oushak re-surfaced as a well-known center of weaving manufacturers. The new Oushak industry saw two major shifts in design: floral patterns, (greatly influenced by Persian designs), and room size carpets we all the rage. Oushaks are famed for the grand, monumental scale of designs. As you will see with this example below that, we have for sale at Rugs and More!

Most Antique Turkish Oushak rugs are made out of wool that is known as Ghazni wool. Ghazni wool is sheered from Sheep that live in high altitude, frigid climates. This environment promotes a fleece that is dense, durable, very straight, and high in lanolin. The lanolin content improves resistance to water, moisture, and stains. Ghazni wool is preferred in authentic oriental rug manufacture. This wool gives the rug a unique silky softness not found with other materials.Rugs & More is the exclusive provider of authentic rugs for the finest establishments in the world.
