Explore distressed area rugs from our vast selection. A distressed carpet is not one that has been damaged, but rather one that has been artistically re-created in accordance with contemporary interior design trends. These hand-knotted rugs are given chemical treatment and meticulous abrasion, they are manufactured to have the desired aged appearance. As a consequence, colors get lighter, palettes become simpler, and worn becomes visible. They seem old yet in current situations they appear almost paradoxically new and adaptable.
