What is a Patchwork?
Patchwork or “pieced work” is a form of sewing together pieces of rugs into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeating patterns built up with different rug shapes (which can be different colors). These shapes are carefully measured and cut, basic geometric shapes making them easy to piece together.
The patchwork rug is a great idea for transforming your floors. It is also a creative way of bringing color to a room. In the above picture, a rug salvaged from antique rug pieces is a charming part of the décor.
At Rugs and more we carry a large selection of overdyed patchwork rugs. Our vintage patchwork rugs sew together cultures, traditions and history, creating beautifully unique rugs that should be treated as contemporary works of art. Combining pieces of vintage and antique hand-woven rugs and backed with a fabric as reinforcement, they showcase a wide variety of weaving traditions and are created to fit into both contemporary and traditional interior designs
