A Turkish Ushak rug, Number 23598 449x330cm

As part of the ancient Macepotemia, Turkey has a rich history and tradition of making carpets. However, the industrialization and modernization of the country in recent decades have resulted in a severe decline in the production of hand-made rugs.

Therefore the Ushak carpets, like the beautiful example here, are getting harder to find. They are adored and widely used by designers for their soft pastel colours and sparse patterns of large flowers.

Such rugs can elegantly enhance the aesthetics of modern and classic rooms and bring all the decor elements together.

This hardwearing rug would get even more beautiful with use and will last for decades.
