How our Specialists Overdye Rugs
Overdyeing is a delicate process that can only be carried out with the prerequisite knowledge and skill – that’s why all RugKnots overdyeing is performed by artisans with generations of craftsmanship experience.
The steps in our overdyeing process are relatively straightforward – we take well-preserved antique carpets that mainly originate from the Ottoman Empire – which are then de-saturated, washed with a vibrant (or muted) dye, then washed again by hand to create a luxuriously plush pile.
Perfecting these seemingly simple steps is where the generations of experience comes into play, and is where many other rug firms get it wrong. That’s why when you choose a RugKnots overdyed rug, you know that our skilled artisans will not only retain the intricate pattern of the existing carpet – but cleverly add to its character with modern organic dyes that bring a new vibrancy to your chosen style of antique rug.
