2x3 Antique Oushak
Oushak rugs originated in the small town of Oushak in west-central Anatolia, today just south of Istanbul, Turkey. Highly inspired by Persian rugs, the designs of Oushak rugs are typically basedon geometric motifs with a large central medallion, smaller all-over medallions or scattered vine and palmettes. The colors are often subtle, as opposed to the bold colors of many other Persian and Turkish rugs. Together with the designs, Oushaks exude an air of classic elegance.
