From the Inventory: Ağaç, The Beauty & Symbolism of a Vintage Oushak Rug
We found this beautiful rug in a small Central Anatolian village on a sourcing trip last Summer. Ağaç means “tree” in Turkish, and the tree motif is apparent in the rug’s central design.
The branches represent the cypress tree, a symbol that is found in many older rugs from this region and connote the “tree of life.”
The eight pointed star is such a beautiful graphic emblem, representing life from birth to death. This eight pointed star motif dates back to the Middle Ages in Islamic Arts and really contributes to the poetic theme of this rug.
There is such vast symbolism used in Turkish rugs, both antique and modern. If you’re looking for something truly unique, fee free to contact us.
