I really want a beautiful new rug for my bedroom. I was looking at Persian rugs and thought it would be cool if you could get them in neon colours.
So i googled 'neon Persian rug' and it turns out someone else has had the same idea! I found these wonderful rugs by Jan Kath.
He gives the classic carpets from days gone by an innovative new look. The idea: a process is used to strip the dyes from old oriental rugs, which are then re-dyed in contemporary (neon) colors.
He states: The classic patterns now only slightly shimmer through – like a secret from “A Thousand and One Nights.” Further more, in contrast to the general trend, every rug in the Pimp my Rug collection is unique. Each carpet is an individual eye catcher with a strong character that will create a clear color point in every apartment and define the center of the room.
Kath “recycles” previously unused, handcrafted carpets from traditional factories in Iran, Turkey, and Azerbaijan. These Oriental treasures lay many years waiting in vain for new owners in the ware houses of Hamburg’s historic Speicherstadt. Kath has now awakened these sleeping beauties and sent them through a time tunnel, giving them a magnificent new presence.
I love them and would love to have one. I reckon they'll be out of my price range though. One for the wish list.
