Vintage carpets include patchwork rugs and area rugs that look distressed. Patchworks are produced of older carpets. These have been cut in smaller pieces and sewn together in new designs and sizes that resembles carpet tiles. The carpets are about 20-50 years old. Each carpet is carefully selected and undergoes a unique process of colour neutralisation before being over-dyed in an exciting different colour. The result is a traditional carpet design fused with a contemporary touch. This is why “distressed” vintage carpets or overdyed vintage carpets have become so popular – not only do they give a new life to an aged carpet, but they add a vibrant splash of color into our lives, while still exuding the timeless class of an original handcrafted piece of art.
