Vintage rugs are often washed with stone to preserve the style of faded colours of antique oriental carpets.

Vintage rugs from the orient, are overhauled and almost completely discoloured. This lowers the pile down to a minimum. The carpets are then dyed with modern new colours and patterns. Thus a completely new carpet in modern vintage style is created from an old hand-knotted oriental carpet with a long history.
So-called patchwork carpets are also produced in this way. They are made of older oriental carpets, hand-knotted in the Middle East. They are also often re-dyed after processing and then cut into several pieces. The parts of different carpets are then colour-matched and sewn together. Thus, a new patchwork carpet is created from different old oriental carpets. There are also patchwork carpets that have not been newly dyed and those made from old kilims.
