U-5164 - Antique Square Turkish Oushak Rug
18ft X 18ft
A difficult to find square Oushak in a large size. The luxurious quality of the wool (for which Oushaks have always been famous) contributed to the vibrancy of the colors. Unlike most Turkish rugs, Oushak rugs were heavily influenced by Persian design. Many depictions of ancient oriental carpets in old western paintings appear to be styles designed and woven in Oushak. Many people look at Oushak rugs for their history and ancient value, but even in today's world of carpet weaving, there are countless Oushak rugs that truly convey the original aesthetic and sense of timeless ancient design.

Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
