Vintage rugs are associated with great creativity, irrepressible charm and dashing style. They come from all corners of the world, from America through Europe to Middle and Far East. A bit too young to be called antique, vintage rugs are ones that are at least 40 years old. Their diversity stems from and adds up directly to the heritage of antiquity. Thus, the terms vintage and antique in reference to carpets are sometimes used interchangeably.
Mid-20th century is the time when the majority of today’s most sought-after vintage rugs were created. This noble group includes the works of world-famous designers and artists. Scandinavia is represented by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, Barbro Nilsson, Judith Johansson, and Ingegerd Silow, among others. England had William Morris or Gavin Morton, while Morocco boasts the works of Berber artisans from the Rif Mountains near Taza. Various destinations, from China through India to Spain, surprise with their very different outlook on design.
