About Our Rugs

Using ancient Turkish techniques, our rugs are fashioned from original handmade and organically dyed wool and cotton blend vintage Turkish rugs. The edges are handsewn and we are responsible for the shaving, bleaching, colourisation, overdying and drying of our reworked rugs. We soak all of our rugs in pools of boiling water with only TÜV approved textile dyes so you can rest assure they are of the highest and safest quality.

Patchwork Rugs

Recycling just took a beautiful new turn. Patchwork rugs are fashioned from patches of 50 to 80 year old antique Turkish rugs. These have been cut into smaller pieces and handsewn together to create new designs and sizes. Our patchwork rugs come in a wide range of colours and sizes. We can also produce a customised size if you require specific dimensions. The colours and designs have been specially chosen to produce a harmonic blend. The backside of the rug is cotton fabric. We overdye the rugs with vibrant tones for a modern twist.

Vintage Collection

The colored vintage collection has been produced from Turkish carpets of at least 40-50 years of age. Each carpet is carefully selected and undergoes a unique process of colour neutralisation before being overdyed with an exciting new colour. The result is a mix of traditional Turkish carpet design fused with a contemporary style. Each rug is unique by size and by colour. You can view the current Vintage Collection here.

Kilim Patchworks

Our Kilim patchwork rugs are produced from 30 to 70 year old Turkish Kilims. A Kilim is a unique style of flat tapestry-woven carpet made popular during the Ottoman era. We cut these older rugs into smaller pieces and sew them together to form new designs and sizes. Using a special technique when weaving, we're able to vie the carpet a thinner and cover-like quality. The backside is made from cotton fabric.

CHOOSING A RUG SIZE We like big rugs and we cannot lie. That’s because generally speaking: the bigger the better when it comes to rugs. You obviously don’t want anything that hits the baseboards because it’s too oversized, but a nice generously-sized rug can make a room feel expansive and welcoming (while a too-tiny rug can make a space feel smaller and choppier). In most cases, you can almost go wall-to-wall with your rug – just leaving a foot or two of border around each edge. For example, this 10 x 14″ green rug fills our 13.5 x 18″ bedroom nicely, adds some softness and pattern, and generally makes the room feel more polished and complete. But in large rooms or open-concept spaces, a rug...
