 Add A Splash Of Color With A Patchwork Vintage Rug

Our overdyed patchwork vintage rugs are just the thing to introduce a splash of color to any space. We select a Turkish hand-knotted patchwork vintage rug to create our collection of over-dyed rugs. We wash the colors, but care to keep the original patterns still alive. We then overdye them with a new color of choice, cut them into smaller pieces and hand sew the fragments together with a sturdy yarn. The rearrangement of the fragments transforms the ancient craft of rug making into unique artwork suited for contemporary settings at home or in offices. 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.

Patchwork Vintage Rug Uses

Patchwork is most often used to make quilts, but it can also be used to make bags, wall-hangings, warm jackets, cushion covers, skirts, waistcoats and other items of clothing. Some textile artists work with patchwork, often combining it with embroidery and other forms of stitchery. When used to make a quilt, this larger patchwork or pieced design becomes the “top” of a three-layered quilt, the middle layer being the batting, and the bottom layer the backing. To keep the batting from shifting, a patchwork or pieced quilt is often quilted by hand or machine using a running stitch in order to outline the individual shapes that make up the pieced top, or the quilting stitches may be random or highly ordered overall patterns that contrast with the patchwork composition. Patchwork Rug or “Pierced Pieces” is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeat patterns built up with different fabric shapes (which can be different colors). These shapes are carefully measured and cut, basic geometric shapes making them easy to piece together.
