The Patchwork carpets are created from several 30-90 year-old Turkish carpets, whose parts are washed, repaired and woven together into the floor decoration called Patchwork.
Trendcarpet's manufacturer in Istanbul travel throughout Turkey and buys vintage carpets from dealers in small villages and regions. The carpets are then taken to laundries where they are cleaned before they are forwarded to a repairer, where they are looked after, repaired and strengthened. This is also where the small pieces of the carpets are put together to create the new carpet, the Patchwork. The carpet then moves on to the final stretching. Here, all the carpets are placed on tables of different sizes and carefully stretched, from corner to corner and side to side to take on their rectangular shape.
