Vintage patchworks consist of various pieces put together. Since various pieces of different carpets and/or kilims are brought together, vintage patchworks are considered to be a blend of various culture and history of various regions. All of the pieces making a patchwork carpet are also hand knotted and naturally dyed making it unique and beautiful.
Those pieces are selected from carpets/kilims that are at least 30 years old. They are collected from various villages throughout Anatolia. Then they cleaned and washed carefully, original patterns are kept as they are overdyed in new colors with natural dyes. After all these processes they are cut in different sizes and sewn together. This way a new contemporary art pieces comes into life. Also their back is sewn with buckram and cotton cloth which strengthens it.
