All our Modern Persian rugs are reprocessed from old handmade carpets collected from all over the Anatolia region, they're carefully selected for the remaking procedure. Once collected each carpet goes through an extensive cleaning procedure in Turkey, the pile is then shaved very short, almost flat (depending on style). Once shaved the carpets then go through a decolouring process, this includes a special washing process and the use of the hot Turkish sunlight.Once the colours are very light and pastel the carpet is then re-dyed in special dyeing pools, once dyed the carpet is washed again to fix dyes. Again the carpet is left in the sun to dry and tone down the colours.
The Patchwork rugs are made by cutting and stitching many different handmade carpets together, this way the use of many different colours can be used to give the stunning patchwork look. We importer these carpets direct, this cuts out the middleman and enables us to sell well below normal prices, you would easily pay well over double for a carpet of this type and size.So overall this is your chance to own a handmade carpet with loads of character that has been revamped and given a new lease of life for modern times.
