How beautiful are these vintage patchwork rugs - more work of art than a rug!
Known as an Over Dyed Rug - the technique used to create this style of Turkish rug involves collecting traditional, hand knotted and antique wool rugs, putting them through a series of washes to remove most of the colour, then re-dying the carpet with natural pigments and washing again.
The effect of this washing out of colour and re-dying creates an incredibly unique look as each piece of carpet reacts differently depending on design and material. The original design remains but the over dying leaves a solid colour impression on each patch allowing for a rug that combines all one colour range to match a colour scheme or contrasting colours for a vibrant look.
Each precious carpet square is carefully chosen for its patterning, shape, design and colour then stitched together onto a cotton backing using matching or contrasting wool - depending on the style of rug.
All rugs vary so if you have a select colour combination you prefer to match your home and decor - we can place a custom order. Lead time is 3 months.
