Region of Origin
Usak in inner west Anatolia is known for carpets that mark the rise of what scholars refer to as the Turkish carpet design revolution. This revolution refers to the transition from highly geometric designs to curvilinear designs seen in Persian carpets that closely resemble motifs in Ottoman architecture and art.
Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply.
