The powerful appearance of recolored carpets

Everyone loves colour! That is exactly why you can always find recolored carpets in our collection. Recolored? Yes: super beautiful vintage rugs that have been given a new color.

The rugs are used: they are at least 30 years old and come from Turkey. There the rugs are bought or exchanged for a new rug. Then the renewal process can start.
How is it done?

First the carpet is shaved. Part of all wool is removed. The rug is then washed and, if necessary, repaired. Then the rug gets a dye bath, which gives it its new color: yellow, green, orange, pink, blue, ……. Everything is possible! To ensure that every piece of wool is dyed, the carpet is washed in the bath for about 10 minutes. Due to this specific way of dyeing, the original pattern of the rug remains perfectly visible. After the dye bath, the rug is given plenty of time to dry completely. After that, the edges of the rug are thoroughly inspected. Damaged edges are restored where necessary, which are festooned on the rug.

Something for everyone..

The rugs were originally handmade by Turkish housewives. The size of the rug was adapted to the size of the living room: the larger the room, the larger the rug. The patterns in the rug are all manually applied, making each rug unique. Recolored rugs are available in all sizes, all colors and in a wide variety of patterns, making both classic and modern rugs available.

Which color should I choose?

Due to the wide range of colors it may be difficult to choose which color is most suitable for your interior. The so-called “safe” colors beige, grey, black, brown or blue are often chosen. These colors are often easy to combine with all kinds of other colors. To ensure that you make the right choice for the color of your recolored rug, we have a few tips for you:

• view the colors in good daylight
• do not always go for the same colour, that can become monotonous
• bring contrast to your interior
• don't be afraid to experiment; playing with colors and contrast is inspiring and can lead to new ideas.
