Ushak Star


Ushak Star - These Rug designs originally were woven in the western Anatolian town of Ushak, known for carpet weaving since the fifteenth century.

The Star Ushak is named for the large star-shaped medallions which alternate with smaller diamond-shaped units. The two elements are arranged, alternating in staggered rows, in the fashion of the earlier Holbein and Lotto rugs.

A number of other carpet designs, including the star medallion pattern of this rug, are found in pieces which generally have wool, coloring, specific design elements, and technical features similar to the medallion Ushaks; these carpets can be assigned to the Ushak region as well.
