Journey with Pfister through Turkey Patchwork carpets

At the end of October 2016, our buyers were on a shopping roundtrip in Turkey, Iran and Pakistan. In all three countries, a lot of work is being dedicated to the development of new products and the further development of the existing qualities of oriental carpets.

We want to show you exclusive pictures of our trip to Turkey. Dive into the production of patchwork carpets.


At our supplier in Sultanhani (Central Turkey) new colours are selected for patchwork carpets. A patchwork carpet is about magnificent details. Each patchwork carpet consists of several pieces of cut carpets, which are arranged into a new, exciting, unique piece and carefully sewn together. This creates a unique floor decoration and a piece of lived history.

Step 1: Wash

The starting materials for the patchwork production are old used carpets. These are carefully washed and dried in the sun before they are dyed.

Step 2: Dye

Then the carpets are dyed in environmentally friendly dye, consisting of Swiss textile dye.

Step 3: Sew

Here the carpet pieces are attached using a wool thread.



The entire manufacturing process, from washing to dyeing and to sewing it together, takes 14 to 16 days. Just the sewing of the approximately 35 individual pieces of a 170 x 240 cm carpet takes 3 to 4 days.


Step 4: Finish

After the patchwork parts have been sewn by hand, the carpet is cut to the desired size.


Bindings are attached with a sewing machine so that the edges do not unravel.


On the back, the «Backing» is attached and fixed by hand as a last step.


With a great deal of care and time spent, the final result is a beautiful patchwork carpet, which brings a bit of the Orient into our home. Shop these beautiful carpets and more in our stores and the online store.
