Ushak/Oushak Carpets were woven in the town of Ushak (also known as Oushak) in Anatolia, about one hundred miles south of Ankara, the Turkish capital. Oushak rugs have been prized for their refinement, quality, and design for over 500 years ago, when they were first in high demand by nobility and royalty of the Ottoman Empire as decorative wall and table coverings. Since then, the reputation of Ushak/Oushak rugs has withstood the test of time: as their reputation increased, so did their value. Their designs, which display a strong Persian/Iranian influence, contain large-scale motifs and rich colors, are distinct. Angora Ushak/Oushak rugs were woven between the late 1880s and 1910, using very fine, high-quality shiny wool.
