This was the original. This is the top of the Chinese hook rag and it was bright, colors and then over time, it faded. So what the owner did was they took the edge strip that used to be on this side, flipped it over and sewed it on what was the topside and made the back the top, because it was brighter when they did that and then over the years it Faded and now this is what the rug looks like now.
Why? Wouldn't you just throw this rug out? Well, the new trend for decorating now is vintage chic or you can take older items or old looking items and you can make a comfort room and that's where you use overstuffed furniture, faded old items, things that you remember from your childhood and you put them all In one room - and that is where you can go to relax to meditate, and that is why all drugs can have a new life, especially rights from auction houses, because you can get them for a low low price and you can refurbish them. So not all rugs have to be new to be great, and old. Rugs can always have a new life, no matter. If they're faded have a little bit of damage, they can always be used for something else.
This is the top side, the original top side of the rug. It's a golden color that used to be green, and this rug was bought at an auction house here in Victoria for under $ 50 and it's a 10 by 14. So it's quite a large rug. It's for not a lot of money! It does have a little bit of damage. It is missing some fibers along one edge and one corner, but that can easily cover it up by furniture. Now you may be wondering why buy a rug that has been faded? It's old. It's got damage.
