Anatolia:

Home to many significant civilizations throughout history and abundant in archaeological remains, Anatolia was the primary center of Oushak carpet production dating back to the early days of the Ottoman Empire. Now woven in India, specialized artisans have rejuvenated the carpets from the traditional Turkish star and medallion motifs in heavy color palettes to more subtle designs and refined colors. Unlike the Persian knot construction, Oushak carpets are more loosely woven with a Ghiordes knot and a shortened pile, which is hand-spun from a silky, luminous New Zealand Wool fiber. Avant - Garde Anatolia.
