Oushak Rugs: A Turkish Beauty, Which is Hard to Resist!
Originated in Western Turkey, Oushak or Ushak rugs mesmerize with their endearing elegance, dappled shading and wonderful designs. They have been named after their place of origin, Oushak.
Unlike most Turkish rugs, the Oushak rugs are influenced by the Persian designs. Oushak city has been recognized as an eminent center of rug production since the 15th century. Before their commercialization, Oushak rugs were manufactured by the nomads for their personal use.
Many historians categorized Oushak rugs as “Anatolian Rugs” that is more a “term of convenience” used for the rugs made in Asia Minor. They are believed to inspire many masterpieces of the 15th and 16th centuries. For example, the popular medallion and star rugs are influenced by the Oushak rugs.
The modern Oushak rugs are an amalgamation of traditional tribal style with Ushak and Smyra designs. This new form was originated in the late 19th century.
Identifying the Traits of Oushak Rugs
Materials and Textures:
Some of the common materials to be used in the rugs are cotton, silk, wool and even metal threads. Cotton is used to make the foundation of Oushak carpets while wool is the key materials used in its pile.
It takes years of experience and dexterous hands to make the rug. That’s why the rug looks stand out from the others. The most important thing to look for is the density as well as the knot size. It is important to know how the knots are tied because if it is loosely woven then it may affect the durability of the rug.
Designs and Patterns:
Oushak rugs feature unique patterns and color palette, thanks to their dark ivory or golden backdrop with striking floral or geometric motifs. However, green colors are used in the prayer rugs. Natural vegetable dyes are generally used in these rugs. Some commercial woven carpets feature delicate red undertone as their key colors.
