This antique Oushak rug, although less decorative than some other oriental compositions, encompasses the unmatched charm and quality of Turkish creations. It was thoroughly hand-knotted of the first-rate wool in accordance with traditional weaving techniques, allowing it to survive until today in an excellent condition.

The main field comprises delicate and simple flower motifs, whereas the borders include tribal symbols of protection and fertility. The sandy beige and light brown color palette perfectly harmonizes with the spare and uncomplicated design.
