'Star Ushak' Carpet
Not on view
The starlike medallions that give this type of carpet its name were a favored design among commercial weavers of the Ushak district of western Anatolia. The inspiration for the infinitely repeating pattern may have its source in other media, such as architectural tilework. Most Ushak carpets are easily recognizable by their characteristic color palette of rich red, dark blue, and yellow, often highlighted with touches of bright white and fresh green.
