Founded in a small town in western Turkey, Oushak (or Ushak) rugs were influenced by Persian designs. In the 15th century, the small town of Oushak became one of the largest production center for Turkish rugs.
Geographical access to an abundance of materials such as wool and natural dyes allowed for high production and commercialization. Unlike many rugs, what made the classic Oushak rugs popular was the distinct design and craftsmanship that was prevalent in each and every rug.
The designs were largely geometric and floral. A central medallion was always present along with smaller medallions that were arranged around the entire border of the rug.
We have successfully reproduced the authentic weaving techniques that were once employed during the classic times. We have made the classic design accessible.
French Accents offers the traditional style as well as the our own contemporary interpretation of the iconic design. Perfect to complement today's modern lifestyles.
