Most of my overdyed Persian handmade wool rugs are vintage pieces from the weaving centre of Kerman in central Iran. They are a fairly new concept- along with patchwork rugs they are a clever way to recycle vintage handmade Persian rugs with some wear.
The inventor of this great idea decided to simply dip them in either a single colour or add multiple dyes to various areas to produce a funky transitional crossover rug. They are highly original one-off rugs made to give the buyer traditional rug designs and motifs but with added zest. Persian overdyed handmade wool rugs cross over into traditional and transitional categories too and look unusual and rare in any age of the home. Fantastic!
This example of a handmade vintage overdyed Persian rug is one of the best in that the contrasting colours are few but very discernible. That French or peacock blue is one of my favourites and gold is the only colour that suits it to perfection- while somehow it remains subtle but eye catching.
NB. These are vintage rugs and have either a very low pile or areas of wear. They should always be used with a suitable underlay and never in rooms with a lot of activity. Never wet clean – dry clean only.
