Patchworked rugs combine something that is normally unapproachably expensive (vintage Persian rugs) with something practical, make-do and homey-- patchwork. A delicious mash-up. My great grandmothers left behind quilts made of clothes that could no longer be mended into wearability and I love the look of patched together rugs made of old rugs too damaged to be used intact.
I like to haunt various ebay sellers for approachably-priced combinations of patches that I like.
