Our collection of patchwork vintage rugs consists of antique rugs and vintage rugs mainly from Turkey. This style of vintage patchwork rug is a beautiful encounter between ancestral traditional know-how and modernity which has given rise to a new vintage style of rug: the vintage patchwork rug.
These patchwork rugs are nomadic or village rugs that are made from old rugs. These are cut into small pieces which are assembled and knotted by hand to form new dimensions and designs giving rise to unique and original patchwork rugs. These patchwork rugs are generally made of rugs between 40 and 50 years old, hence the name vintage patchwork rug or old patchwork rug. Each old patchwork rug is therefore unique in design, dimensions and natural colors. The patchwork rug therefore draws all its originality and charm from the use of old pieces of kilims assembled in a new style. Traditional kilim rugs, woven in the middle of the 20th century in Anatolia, all tell a different story and therefore give each patchwork rug its own identity.
These patchwork rugs are creative rugs, unique pieces made in a current style since they are made in a contemporary style. By revisiting an ancestral weaving art, the weavers manage to give a second life to authentic materials, through a clever mix of creativity and vintage style. These unique creations of old patchwork rugs are completely current while retaining the authenticity of the original materials and the know-how of ancestral weaving.
An expression of popular art, these modern patchwork rugs immediately won over an audience of contemporary art lovers, lovers of vintage style and tribal art. The original colors of the traditional kilim have faded to make way for softer hues. This gives the patchwork rugs an old-fashioned and delicate look that we really appreciate and want to share with you.
The antique carpets and vintage carpets selected by Arteslonga are unique pieces and there is therefore only one copy of each. You will therefore always buy a unique and authentic rug of good quality.
