Migrating Turkish nomads of Oushak created fabulous tribal designs. So that they could finish before the tribe moved on, they used few colors, simple designs, extra yarn, and large Turkish-style knots. Their colors were limited to a few earthy tones and vibrant reds. The thick yarn provided for larger motifs which allowed little detail. Hand-knotted with the finest hand-spun wool yarn, this rug was processed with a special wash to masterfully reproduce the coveted sheen acquired over time by prized antique Oushak rugs.
