Overdyed Runner— Mahdi

$1,150.00

Mahdi is a vintage Turkish Overdyed Runner. 

 

These sturdy vintage knotted pile rugs come from the Western Anatolian region of Isparta. They were made between 1940 and 1960. 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.

This runner has retained it's original pattern with a bold and beautiful pistachio tone throughout the main field and goldy/mustard florets  through the centre and along the end fringe border. We have two pieces that are almost identical to each other and would look excellent down a long hallway.
