I’m loving the overdyed rugs from new online store Patchy Rugs, curated by Melbourne designer Lauren Seeman. She’s handpicked vintage kilims from Turkey; each one a unique mixture of old and new.
The debut collection includes two styles: patchwork and overdyed. While the patchwork aren’t really my style, I really love the overdyed rugs, especially the hot pink ones. All the kilims are traditional pieces that are 40-to-50 years old. They’re high quality and made from half cotton and half wool.
The overdyed rugs are the perfect mix of vintage and contemporary and available in earthy tones as well as vibrant colours (hot pink, yeah!).
Graphic designer and blogger Lauren, says: “The patchwork variety have been made by sewing patches of different rugs together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts! The contrast of each patch creates a one of a kind rug.” She spotted the rugs while travelling. “When I saw them for the first time in Istanbul, it was love at first sight. They say if you’re still dreaming about something the next day, it is meant to be. Well, my dream has grown from a rug in our living room to an online store.”
