Started 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.The reason for this was due to the abundant access of high-quality wool and materials. Unlike many rugs, what made the classic Oushak rugs popular was because of the craftsmanship as well as the aesthetic emphasis that was placed in each design. The designs are largely geometric and floral with a central medallion where smaller medallions are arranged around the entire template of the rug.
