Story Behind the Art: Peshawar Oushak rugs (made in Pakistan) are a specific rug style that favors the weaving and design techniques of the authentic Oushak rugs from Turkey. Hand-knotted rugs are Pakistan's second-largest cottage and small industry that began as early as the 11th century under the Mughal rule. The craftsmen have the capacity to produce any type of rug using all the popular motifs of guls, medallions, paisleys (botehs), traceries, and geometric designs in various combinations. Tight weaving, silk like wool, bright, deep color range and realistic motifs have become the defining feature of these rugs. It is this combination of exquisitely detailed and painstaking craftsmanship and masterful interplay of design elements that has earned such rugs age-defying allure and patronship defying borders and time. These rugs are made using a certain family of designs that originate in Uşak, Turkey. They’re recognizable for their large-scale designs and understated elegance. Usually they feature geometric pattern and you will find them with an allover design or with a central medallion motif.
