From The Past to Present

Hello Welcome To My Shop,

I am Mehmet Başpinar, I am in this business over 20 years with my father. Thanks too much to my father for teach me this business,

I have started in this business with learn which rug is belong to which city in Turkey, and then step by step, learning how to wash and repair the hole, tears on the rugs
The rug's colors, patterns, wool quality and each of each, and now I would like to share my knowledge with Etsy family.

I collected my vintage rugs everywhere in Anatolia. They are belong too many culture, and they are very old age, but most of vintage rugs have long pile because of in the past they didn't have this special crop machine to make the rugs had been thin pile.

Patterns of the vintage rug aren't visible because of long pile, so that, I thought that I can design vintage rugs according to the modern life, it belongs to ancient time and after I designed, it is belongs to present.

I cropped ıts long and dirty pile with special crop machine, it has been short pile and clean, the patterns of the vintage rug have been more visible, and also the colors become more bright.

Later on I wash the bright color rug to make vintage color with natural organic shampoo with hot water, even also I clean its knots deeply, now the rug belongs to today.

Step 1: I cropped the vintage rug's long pile with cropping machine, Here, to see more clear to the design or motifs, and by this way after I designed and cropped the vintage rugs, They became as original like begening,

Step 2: After I croped vintage rug's long pile, I put the cropped rugs in the pool with hot water and with mixture of the natural plants. The colors of the rugs became more pastel and different colors. For example, I obtained a pinkish carpet from a red carpet. I wash the rugs with herbal carpet shampoo and dry them. After all of this situation, thew vintage rug is avaliable for using your home, the patterns of rug are more evident and the old dusty knots are clean and more stronger, healthier and longer lasting.

I would like to share my thought with dear Etsy community, I hope that you appriciate my thought.

Thank you for reading my story,
Warm regards,
Mehmet Başpinar.
