Oushak rugs (in Turkish known as Uşak Kilimi) are rugs for sale that use a particular set of designs, called by convention after the town of Uşak – one of the largest cities in Western Anatolia, which from the early days of the ottoman Empire to the dawn of the 20th century was a major center of rug production (and still stands among the most important ones in the world). Anatolia literally translates into “land of the rising sun”, and historically, antique Oushak Oversized rugs are classified as Anatolian. Interestingly enough, the level of international popularity reached by the antique area rugs from Uşak became such that the word "Ushak" is considered an English word of Turkic origin.
