The SILKEBORG range is a new Limited Edition collection of handmade rugs which represent the traditional and authentic weaving technique of the Turkish peninsula of Anatolia in a contemporary way.
The collection pieces incorporate natural, historical and cultural features of Anatolia into the design through colours and patterns and are all created from pre-owned and loved Turkish rugs.
Limited edition - from January 2017
SILKEBORG rugs will be available in store only. Style, size & selection will vary, with prices ranging from £20 to £650 for these unique pieces.
Old and used Turkish rugs pass through an environmentaly friendly processs to become SILKEBORG patchwork rugs.
Rugs are collected from all around Turkey and deeply cleaned and classified according to their condition, size and colour. They are then carefully sheared, neutralized from their original colours and over-dyed to create remarkable colour assortments.
Over-dyed rugs are undercoated with 100% cotton fabric to obtain firm and sturdy pieces before they are cut into patches and overlocked.
Then patches are composed by rug designers and stitched together by rug artisans. Finally patchworks are coated again with 100 % cotton fabric this time to increase product durability and provide flatness.
