Place of origin
The term Vintage rugs refers to old oriental rugs, which have been given a modern look through a special process. A Vintage rug is a contemporary design, in which traditional craftsmanship meets interior design culture of 2019. Vintage rugs combine past and present. They are characterized by a homogeneous color scheme in shades such as gray, blue, purple, yellow or beige. Sometimes colors such as pink, green or turquoise are also used as accents. The new coloring gives the traditional patterns of oriental rugs a timeless character. Rugs that are no longer in fashion because of their colors are thus given a second life. So our vintage rugs are the product of so-called upcycling. They are produced to be resource-friendly and sustainable.
The clear, abstract design of this contemporary rug appeals especially to people who love simple, modern interior design and architecture. The design idea for this rug comes from Europe. Without being bound to the rules of traditional rug patterns, it was developed with western art and interior design style in mind. This is not a completely new innovation. The roots of European rug design can be traced back to Art Deco rugs, which were produced between the late twenties and fifties following Western specifications.
The surface of this Vintage Rug has a flecked effect. The color changes and light-dark shades of the pile yarn run across the length of the rug, making the colors shimmer and making the rug impervious to dirt. Because of these so-called color jumps Abrash the rug appears more lively. The flecking is the result of the wool of this Vintage Rug being hand-spun. During dyeing, the natural dyes are absorbed differently.
The colors of this Vintage Rug form a gradient and blend into each other.
The background of this Vintage Rug is beige. Furthermore, the color light blue dominates the overall impression.
The pile of this Vintage Rug has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The weft and warp threads of this Vintage Rug are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
