Ushak also spelled as Oushak.
Oushak city is benefiting from its location at the crossroads of the Central Anatolian plateau and the coastal Aegean Region, and from a climate and agricultural production incorporating elements of both of these zones, Ushak has also traditionally strong industrial base. Ushak was the first city in Turkey to have an urban electricity network, and the first city where a collective labor relations agreement was signed, during the Ottoman era, between leather industry employees and workers. It was here that the first factory of Republican Turkey, a sugar refinery, was set up through a private sector initiative among local businessmen. The tradition of industriousness continues today around two industrial zones.
Ushak is also very famous with the carpets and rugs woven in this region.
Antique Oushak rugs have been woven in Western Turkey from the beginning of the Ottoman period. Many of the great masterpieces of early Turkish carpet weaving from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries have been attributed to antique Oushak rugs. When things become clearer toward 1900, Oushak re-emerges as a major center, this time for room-size decorative rugs. Antique Turkish Oushak carpets such as these are desirable today as highly decorative pieces. They come in central medallion designs as well as patterns of smaller allover medallions or scattered sprays of vine scroll and palmettes. They are notable for the grand, monumental scale of the designs. Antique Oushak Rugs often have a subdued palette in soft apricot and golden saffron tones whose pleasing qualities are enhanced by their particularly soft and lustrous wool.
The angular arabesques and ornamental medallions are not dissimilar from Persian motifs but are executed in a more rectilinear manner and woven in a unique palette that includes bold Mediterranean-influenced colors and chic pastels.
Oushak Rugs and carpets have become the rugs of choice for many of the top interior decorators in the world today. Oushak rugs for the most part are not high quality rugs but that is what makes them so special. Antique Turkish rugs were woven with larger scale patterns. Antique Oushak carpets are extremely desirable because of their colors - which are usually much lighter and happier. So if you are looking for an antique rug with a large scale design and soft colors then antique Oushak carpets and rugs can be one of your favorite.
Oushak rugs are some of the most decorative and desirable rugs on the market today. Interior designers and decorators love their open geometric designs, soft color palettes, and wide size range. They are some of the most diverse and unique styles of antique rugs.
