D1218 - Classic Style Oushak Rug
9ft 04in X 13ft
A recreation of a classic Oushak rug using the finest of material and hand woven in India by true craftsmen. The five column allover pattern is the “Harshang” or crab design with ragged palmettes, layered rough hexagons, cogwheel rosettes and other quasi-vegetal elements. The accents include: cream, rust, pale green and straw. The cream ecru main border features an erratic broken tendril with rough acanthus and equally rough palmettes. This carpet faithfully recreates the highly desirable Oushaks of around 1900 which, in turn developed the designs of contemporaneous Persian Heriz/Bakshayesh carpets. The somewhat softer palette is also found on earlier pieces. Colors: blues/grays/ivory.
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.
