Aubusson Rug

What is a Wool Aubusson Rug?

Aubusson Rugs are named after the Aubusson village in Creuse, France. Goods imported to Europe from the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century such as rugs, ceramics and products alike resulted in the establishing of workshops that produced similar products in Europe. Rug enthusiasts in France started rug workshops and in the 17th century rug production started in France with the permission of the royal palace. The workshop was moved to Savonnerie after some time. Rugs made here used oriental designs and the Turkish knots. Rugs made in Savonnerie were inspired by Anatolian designs and they were trying to keep up with the high quality of Anatolian rugs.

After the workshop in Savonnerie, efforts towards a second workshop in Aubusson intensified. In 1744 the first production center came to life. Early Aubusson rugs used Turkish rug motifs. Especially medallion Oushak design was prevalent. After a few years into the production of Aubusson rugs motifs taken from rugs brought from Istanbul, Izmir and rest of Anatolia were used all together.

After rugs made in Savonnerie rose to fame, new motifs were designed for Aubusson rugs with the help of painters and designers. With inspirations from Baroque and Rococo styles Aubusson rugs have attained their rich form.

Aubusson rugs were made for the palaces and homes of the wealthy of their day. They reflect the elegance and beauty of the culture they came to life. The rugs used in the large rooms of palaces generally use medallions with flower motifs.

Aubusson tapestries were another highly regarded product of its day. These textiles were made in the style of Goblin and they were used to embellish the walls and floors of palaces as well as churches. They were made in baroque, rokoko styles and they portray scenes. The technique ısed in the making of these tapestries reminds one of embroidery on flat textile.

Aubusson rugs and tapestries are still produced and they have lost nothing of their elegance and beauty. They are indispensable pieces of textile in home decor. They are widely used in our present day as they are produced in many sizes.

Aubusson tapestries have certain motifs depending on their production era. The early productions have medallions in the center with circling Oriental motifs. From 1800’s with Napoleon’s influence designs with shields, swords, helmets and torches were used immensely to symbolise war. Aubusson tapestries have taken their place among the most elegant rug designs with their color variations and designs created by famous painters.

What is a Needlepoint Rug?

Needlepoint rugs are a kind of rug made by kind of a flat weaving technique. The difference than traditional flat weaving is a kind of cross stitching is used in the making of these rugs. It is basically made by creating motifs on a woven textile with a needle using colorful threads. They are also known as Goblen.
