Oushak Rugs

Discover the Unique Beauty of
Oushak Rugs

Oushak has a rich history of rug making, dating back to the 15th century. One of the most notable features of Oushak rugs is their soft, muted color palette, which is often characterized by earthy tones such as beige, cinnamons, terracotta tints, gold, blues, greens, ivory, saffron and greys. These colors are combined with delicate floral and geometric designs, creating a sense of harmony and balance unique to Oushak rugs. The popular star and medallion carpets originated in Oushak.

Some types are called Lotto Carpets. This term comes from the Oushak carpets that Lorenzo Lotto used in his paintings, down to the finest detail.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Oushak rugs is their texture, which is soft and luxurious underfoot. This is due to the high-quality wool used in their production, which is often hand-spun and hand-dyed using natural materials. Oushak is also conveniently located near the Izmir port, making it easily accessible to European markets.

From the 16th up to the 18th century, Oushak was home to some of the most famous rug manufacturers of the Ottoman Empire. These master weavers created rugs of exceptional beauty and quality, which were highly sought-after by the aristocracy and wealthy merchants of the time.

Today, Oushak rugs continue to be produced using traditional methods and techniques, preserving the rich cultural heritage of Turkish rug making. These rugs are beautiful and functional and represent a connection to a bygone era of artistry and craftsmanship. Oushak rugs are a work of art that adds elegance and sophistication to any space.

Traditional rugs from our Zara collection are a recreation of 19th century classic rugs. Often, a boldly colored centered medallion is enclosed by a floral design and the whole is framed with a neutral colored wide border. This type of rug was traditionally placed in the entrance halls of grand estates to reflect the status and wealth of the owner. In our collection there is a wide variety of designs, both with central medallions and with an all-over pattern as well.
