Amazing colours on this late 19th century Turkish Ushak carpet, stunning golden yellow border with a pink main field. Complimented by the soft greens used for the swirling ‘cloud-band’s style motifs and floral designs. Some burnt oranges tones are famous of Ushak carpets and aubergine tones too. A wonderful decorative antique carpet, in good order in general, with areas of antique restoration in places. A sturdy pile is apparent over most of the carpet and supplied with our underlay this aids the carpet massively. Preventing movement which in turn helps preserve the carpet on wooden, tiled, sisal or carpeted floors.
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.
