Originating in the city of Oushak in central western Anatolia, Turkish Oushak rugs display a mesmerizing Persian influence, making them one of the most popular types of antique rugs. Oushak (or Ushak) rugs are handmade carpets that originated in Turkey many centuries ago. Oushak rugs (known as Usak Kilimi in Turkish) are carpets that use a specific set of designs. Colors: terracotta/ivory/blue/taupe.
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.
