Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy it!
Today is more or less 5 years since I have dyed my first carpet.
Having realized the potential of carpet dyeing, I've taken a 3 days carpet dyeing course and excitedly got back to my workshop to practice.
The results were mixed, mainly due to lack of experience, but at the same time I've identified the need of having better dyes.
The taxi driver takes a motorway exit towards Istanbul. I have asked him to take me to an address in Ankara... I want to say something but I don’t speak any Turkish, so I ask him in English. He looks at me, shrugs his shoulders, and continues to drive.
Here are 10 of the most common misconceptions about carpet dyeing:
1. Any carpet can be dyed
Only wool and nylon carpets can be dyed. Polyester and polypropylene fibres don't have dye pockets so they cannot be dyed in the conventional way.
Unfortunately, the UK Persian carpet and oriental rug cleaning industry is not regulated, which means there is no minimum requirement to become an Oriental carpet or area rug cleaner.
