Morerugs Shop has Persian overdyed and Iranian vintage carpet that knots by hand. Carpets are available in difference by sizes and types and Iranian cities.
Carved and Hi-Low Pile carpets are made of Persian carpets. They are selected from 15 – 25 years of handmade carpets. They cleaned and washed and their original colors are neutralized and they are overdyed. The difference between overdyed and those rugs is some patterns of those carpets are carved and their piles reduce as small as possible and rest left as original. This cutting technique makes the carpet look 3D design. After this unusual transformation, these carpets may call a piece of contemporary art and they complement any modern and minimal home decor.
