New Rugs Are Of The Highest Quality In Its Category And Are Handpicked Overseas By The Bashir Family
Ushak (Oushak), which is in west central Turkey, is an ancient commercial carpet-weaving centre most famous for its ‘star’ and ‘medallion’ patterned rugs of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. These were venerated in Europe at the time, and coften appear in contemporary paintings. Ushak today produces little of merit, but carpets from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries tend to be of very good quality and highly sought after. The red-ground Ushak displays excellent detailing, both in its endless field design and in the green border, and is a highly sophisticated piece.
The carpet with the white ground illustrated contains a design of heavily stylised linked geometric leaves, one of the designs frequently found in Ushak carpets.
