Oushak Turkish Style Rug For Sale

A client of ours wants to sell his beautiful hand knotted toned down green rug that has been professionally washed by us recently. The size is 13' 3" x 16' 10". It's probably 10-15 years old in good condition. The foundation of this rug is cotton (plant based from nature) and the pile is Lamb's (from animal and also from nature) wool. This rug has a very soft handle. Wool is very resilient and its texture allows it to quickly recover from crushing or indenting caused by footsteps or furniture. This natural resilience also keeps the rug looking new and fresh for longer periods of time. Wool has a natural ability to resist staining and soiling

When comparing wool vs synthetic rugswool is more comfortable and more durable, while synthetic rugs are generally less luxurious and must be replaced and/or maintained more often.

Wool by far is the best texture that comes from the nature. The design of this rug is a popular design of overall or floral which is very popular these days compared with the ones that have medallions in the middle of the rug. 

With good care and proper maintenance, this rug will last for a long time and can be passed down to the next generation.   







 If you're interested, please contact us for pricing and receiving more information. You can also come in to see this beautiful rug in person. There is no consultation fee or commitment.

Color Restoration and Over Dyeing a Faded Rug

Over-Dyeing and Reconstruction of Color

This is one of our latest projects to over dye a faded rug. This carpet was sun and foot traffic faded and the client wanted to restore the rug rather than trashing it and buying a new rug. So we dusted and professionally washed it and then restored the color. 

So if you have a rug you love but is faded or even if you don't like the color and want to see if the color can be changed, give us a call to discuss your project. You can reach us at 310-770-9085.

A Safavid 400-year old Kerman carpet sold at Christie's for GBP 562,500 or $778,000

Sold April 1st, 2021 at the Christie’s in London for GBP 562,500 $778,000 

An important Kerman  ‘Vase’ carpet fragment, Southeast Persia, first half 17th century. 8 ft 8 in x 5 ft 5 in (267 cm x 168 cm). 

‘In the top left-hand corner it also connects to a fragment that’s in the Louvre, and in the lower part we have a partial ivory palmette, which connects to a fragment in the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin,’ Broadhurst explains.

It is also the mirror portion of a fragment in the Musée Historique des Tissus in Lyon, while other pieces of the original carpet can be found in the V&A in London; the Design Museum in Copenhagen; Glasgow’s Burrell Collection; the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg; Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha.


Broadhurst, the head of Christie’s Oriental Rugs & Carpets department, explains that the design of this carpet would have been complex to create, with multiple, intertwined flowering vines woven in 17 different colors and an average of 36 knots per square centimeter.

It is one of a dozen known pieces of the original carpet, which was most likely divided up during the 19th century. ‘Many Vase carpets were salvaged and preserved as fragments,’ she says. In fact, no complete examples on a comparable scale have survived.
