Vintage Rug
'Top of the Rock #596'

474x345 cm

This large rug is a real one-of-a-kind carpet that was made by hand in the 1950s. It got its modern and totally unique look by having undergone an elaborate finishing process that includes restoration, sun bleaching in order to make the original color fade, and a shortening of the 100% sheep wool pile. It got re-colored in light blue hues afterwards to create the base of the rug. In this case, the extra short pile just gives hints of the original pattern the rug used to have, showing in darker but also lighter highlights. From far away the carpet seems to be monochrome, but taking a closer look it reveals its variety of colors throughout the whole surface.
