Together with Kilims, Oushak rugs are among most popular types of antique Turkish carpets. Oushak rugs are traditionally classified as Anatolian, making them a part of Turkish rug family. Until the eighteenth century, most popular designs for Oushak rugs were ‘medallion’ and ‘star’, often depicted in jewel tones of brick red, terracotta, deep blue and gold. Antique Oushak rugs can be characterized by their rather loose knots, which result a fairly long pile.
