Overdyed Rug—Melik


Melik is a Turkish overdyed patchwork rug.

This rug has been created from fragments of old knotted pile rugs. Pieces from vintage rugs are arranged in patchwork style (an art in itself) then stitched together in blanket stitch, using a super strong thread; 50% cotton, 50% non-flammable polyester.

They have now been recycled to create a thoroughly unique, modern and colourful floor covering. The pile on these old/new rugs has been pared back, the original dyes neutralized, then the rug over-dyed with a deeply saturated single colour.

Each rug is then backed with a heavy cotton canvas, making the finished product extremely durable. The standard of workmanship is very high and these pieces lie totally flat.
