Oushak Rugs & Carpets
Oushak rugs (in Turkish known as Uşak Kilimi) are carpets that use a particular set of designs. Uşak is one of the largest cities in Western Anatolia. From the early days of the Ottoman Empire to the dawn of the 20th century, it was a major center of rug production. It still stands among the most important ones in the world. Anatolia literally translates into “land of the rising sun”. Historically, antique Oushak rugs are classified as Anatolian. The level of international popularity reached by the Oushak rugs from Uşak caused an interesting phenomenon.
