What is a vintage rug?
Vintage rugs are real old hand-knotted rugs. Most rugs are older than 50 years, and mainly come from Turkey. What is special is that we only sell genuine handmade vintage rugs. Many web shops sell imitation rugs that are not handmade. At Lavinta, every vintage carpet is unique. How wonderful is it to have a truly handmade vintage rug in your home?
Before a vintage rug is for sale in our shop, it undergoes an extensive selection and quality process. We only include the best carpets in our collection, so you can enjoy your beautiful rug for years to come.
As mentioned, we select our vintage rugs directly at their origin in Turkey. We work with various traders in Turkey with whom we have been doing business for years. Each carpet is thoroughly cleaned and restored where necessary. Then the carpet feels like new and is actually ready to be sold. A vintage carpet is old, but has a great look and feels like new.
Suitable for any room
Vintage rugs are very popular. This popularity is due to the versatility of vintage rugs. They are suitable for every room and available in every size. From living room to office and from bedroom to kitchen. You will be surprised how much a vintage rug transforms your space into something special.
Dare to go for color
Vintage carpets are not all available in the original colour. The colored vintage rugs are completely hip. These are original handmade rugs with a trendy color. Vintage rugs come in all sorts of colors and sizes. We have yellow vintage rugs, green carpets, but also red, purple and gray rugs. You can also transform the children's room into something special, for example. A pink vintage rug looks great in a girl's room and a blue vintage rug, for example, looks very cool in a boy's room.
Vintage rugs have been made over the years in many different designs. Would you have vintage rugs with an oriental design with a clear border. Flower patterns are also often used in rugs. Other rug designs include geometric patterns, stripe patterns, or simply plain. The choice is truly limitless.
True vintage rugs don't have to be expensive
Many people think that real hand-knotted carpets are expensive. A hand-knotted rug takes much longer to make than a machine-made imitation rug. As a result, the price may be slightly higher, but this is not necessarily the case. Making an average vintage rug can easily take a few months of labor. Still, vintage rugs don't have to be expensive. We offer our rugs at the best possible price. And then you have a real hand-knotted carpet with a unique look. No machine carpet can compete with that. Moreover, a real carpet lasts much longer.
Large assortment and weekly renewed
We receive new vintage rugs every week. So visit our site regularly so as not to miss out on your carpet. There is only one copy of each rug available, so don't wait too long sold is sold.
The powerful appearance of recolated carpets
Everyone loves color! 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 cloth is sheared. 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 carpet.
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 colours, 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
• don't 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.
Or go for a neutral rug, such as gray? These are the advantages of a gray rug:
A gray rug is easy to combine
This is perhaps the most important advantage: gray can be combined with many colours. The shade of gray you choose determines the atmosphere that a room exudes. For example, the combination of dark gray with a beige or pastel shade creates a special contrast. A light gray rug in combination with anthracite or dark gray furniture creates a chic look. Do you have a room with a lot of light that you want to influence as little as possible? Then a light gray rug with a neutral pattern provides warmth and cosiness.
Available in many different types
Grey carpets are available in a wide variety of sizes and shades of gray. The vintage carpets are made of 100% wool and hand-knotted in different patterns. Each rug is therefore unique. A patchwork rug can be put together completely according to your wishes, even if you would like to combine the gray with other colors.
A gray carpet is timeless
Grey is one of the colors that has stood out positively in Western interiors for many years. Gray can be easily combined with both modern and classic interiors in different styles. With a plain gray rug you create peace in your home, while a vintage rug with a pattern provides a classic touch. In addition, gray ensures the connection of different elements, so that a gray rug can provide unity and balance in a room.
A gray rug fits everywhere
You don't have to limit yourself to your living room with a gray vintage rug: the rug also comes into its own in the dining room or bedroom. With gray you can give any room the look you want. Do you want to make a room radiate luxury? Then go for a combination of anthracite with beige. Do you want to make a room look more spacious? Then choose a light gray rug. For a more intimate atmosphere, it is best to buy a dark gray rug. There is a suitable vintage rug for every living space.
