Pakistani motif rug in wool
The vintage collection created by Sartori with the deliberate intention of reusing old carpets and bringing them back to life. In this way antique product gains contemporary features communicating their special message from ancient times. This coupling of classicism and modernity strikes a cord with the eco conscious consumer of today. The Sartori company have spent many years building expert knowledge and experience frequenting the carpet bazaars ofIran,TurkeyandPakistan. Understanding the unique characteristics of pattern and patina and desire to refresh their product to suit the needs of the present moment, resulted in this exciting transformation. To achieve this Sartori distress yet preserve the original patterns then, using tones of black, grey, blue, brown, green, red and purple, the whole carpet is recoloured. The result is a completely new concept: each carpet a ‘new’ original. Each becomes a stand alone work of art.
