Fine Wool Oushak Rug 3/0.8  

Created in Western Turkey,   OUshak rugs are known for their distinct features such as an angular large-scale floral design. They tend to display a calm, serene look. Present day Oushak carpet producers create some of the most wonderful contemporary rugs that capture the feel and aesthetic of their original counterparts.

Not everyone can weave an Oushak. Just like any other rug, Oushak requires experienced and sturdy hands. What makes it stand out from the others is its history. The weaving artistry has been passed down through generations, from mother to daughter, father to son. Though one can still trace the weaving patterns geographically, there are some places where weavers have been trained knot that are not common in the area. The artistry is very rich and though there have been new modifications, the original weaving cannot be easily replaced.

The most important thing to consider is the density as well as the knot size. It is crucial to know how the knots are tied because if it is loosely woven then it may feel flimsy in one’s hand and will not wear as well as a sturdier rug.
