Now that we know where they come from, it's time to talk about how to make them the Rugknots way.
When figuring out how to overdye a rug, one must decide whether to bleach the old design out of the rug, or leave it on. At rugknots, when we overdye our vintage rugs, we never use bleach. No harmful chemicals go on the 100% wool vintage rugs we use. When coupled with our all natural dyes, a faded and worn vintage rug is brought back to life.To get the desired color, the rugs are soaked in die for varying amounts of time. Some vintage overdyed rugs are so saturated in deep dye, the original pattern is a subtle addition. Other times, when lighter dyes are used, more of the original color and design of the rug shines though. Which ever look you need, an overdyed rug has what you desire.
