Oushak-oholic




Once I was introduced to Oushak rugs, other orientals never stood a chance. The coloring of Oushaks (or Ushaks) is sublime; terra cottas, citrus-y golds and yellows, and watery grays and blues.




The colors of antique Turkish Oushaks often blend together and soften with age, forming a beautifully muted background. Yummy.



Wonderfully silky wools and soft earthy colors make Oushaks stand out in a crowd(ed room).
