What adds up to its overall splendor is the hand-execution of the best quality wool and the Abrash effect visible in certain areas of the rug. Although made over 100 years ago, this remarkable antique Oushak rug will successfully fit into contemporary interiors. It is a genuine piece of traditional Turkish weaving art, permeated with the magic and mystery of the Orient.
