Ushak, located in west central Turkey is an ancient carpet weaving center. Known for it’s star and medallion design rugs of the 17th & 18th century.
Ushak’s loose wool feels silky on one’s feet. The dyes tend towards: cinnamons, terracotta tints, gold, blues, greens, ivory, saffron and grays.
Beckwith Galleries’ Ushak Collection have a tribal style fused with the older Ushak designs. The merger of the two styles created a new style that is now.
