From the Inventory: Alexis, Turkish Oushak
Alexis achieves a softness and richness simultaneously, balancing soft hues of pale pink with blues, greens, purples. The versatility of this rug makes it suitable to many tastes.
Drawing influence from the natural motifs of early Oushaks, the oversized scale of the pattern gives this rug a modern feel without taking away from its potential as a traditional piece.
The subtle abrash, or undulation of color created as small hand-dyed batches of wool are woven into the rug, is a nod to tribal rug design, along with the unexpected pattern changes in this oversized piece.
The subtle hues are a modern, subdued take on the blue and red Oushaks that have been so loved throughout time.
