Usak, a historic city in Western Anatolia, is the weaving centre for a group of carpets that were extremely famous as Ottoman palace or court carpets from the 15th - 16th C onwards.This area also has a long history as a weaving centre for fine kilims and is noted for producing some of Anatolia’s largest flatweaves. For some time Usak has concentrated on producing extremely fine, beautifully natural dyed kilims and is now one of the most important centres for the production of new kilims for the domestic and export market. Woven in the homes using tradtional methods, these faltweaves now incorporate designs and motifs derived from important Museum Collections throughout Turkey.

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
