Why should the beauty and skill of the craft of Patchwork be reserved for quilts? First evidenced over 5000 years ago in Egypt and China, the art of selecting fabric fragments and reassembling these into one larger, visually appealing textile has moved, in recent times, to encompass carpet reinvention. Whether you are after a single-colour/ monochrome muted piece or want to go for a multi-coloured maximum statement, we have many options for you to consider. After undergoing the complex overdying process, fragments are cut from complimentary, high-quality but, sometimes, partially damaged Vintage carpets, backed and overlocked to ensure stability, sewn together in a visually appealing pattern and then the whole piece is again backed with strong Turkish cotton or similar fabric. Patchwork Rugs also offer flexibility and choice as custom orders re size, colour and design easily accommodated.
Re-use, re-cycle, reform, reinvent and rejuvenate. We love these words, the ethical statement and the low carbon footprint behind every one of our Patchwork Rugs. Rejoice!
