When European began their love with Oriental carpets, Anatolian rugs were among one of the most desired rugs. Anatolia, a diverse area is now called Turkey. Historically Ushaks were classified as ‘Anatolian Rugs,’ Anatolian literally translating to ‘land of the rising sun.’ ‘Anatolian’ refers to a carpet made in Turkey. The level of international popularity attained by Uşak's carpets became such that the word "Ushak" is considered an English word of Turkic origin Towards the end of the 19th century, when the European market began to be interested in Oriental carpets once again, the Ushak (Oushak) population did not have enough weavers still skilled in the traditional Oushak craft. Manufactories had to turn to neighbouring villages and their craftsmen who still maintained traditional techniques. The late 19th century saw the rejuvenation of Oriental rug production, at this time Oushak re-surfaced as a preeminent centre of weaving industry. The new Oushak industry saw two major shifts in design: floral patterns in the Persian tradition were incorporated into design and room size, decorative carpets were woven as European standards demanded. Weavers came from villages outside of Oushak and employed tribal techniques. Paramount to these techniques was the use of larger knots (sometimes less than 30 knots per square inch) and an all-wool foundation. The merger of the two styles created a new style simply known as late 19th/early 20th century Oushak carpets. The new decorative Oushak, employed a soft red, as its primary colour offsetting the large-scale floral motifs from the field in a bright blue. Later the lighter colours such as beige used as background in the luxurious quality of the wool (for which Oushaks had always been known) aided the colours luminosity. Ushak carpets, particularly those known as Lotto carpets in 16Th. and 17Th. century, are among the types of Oriental carpets in Renaissance painting, as they were imported by Europeans, where they adorned cathedrals, churches, and the homes of the wealthy and powerful. Oushak rugs are known for the silky, luminous wool they work with. The dyes tend towards cinnamons, terracotta tints, gold, blues, greens, ivory, saffron and greys.

The Story Behind the Persian Carpet

The Persian carpet is an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art. Iran is also the world's largest producer and exporter of handmade carpets, producing three quarters of the world's total output. The art of carpet weaving existed in Iran in ancient times, according to evidence such as the 2500-year-old Pazyryk carpet, dating back to 500 B.C., during the Achaemenid period. Wool is the most common material for carpets but cotton is frequently used for the foundation of city and workshop carpets. There is a wide variety in types of wool used for weaving.
