Antique Wash

Antique rugs and carpets not only carry a hefty price tag, they often come with an undesirable yellow or beige hue as result of aging. If you’re looking to add a vintage touch without breaking the bank, an Antique Washed rug is the perfect option, saving you up to 90% over the cost of antique rugs.

We’ll take your average looking rug and antique it overnight into a piece that naturally resembles a 300-year-old rug—the results are so authentic that even the experts have been fooled!


The Antique Wash finish reproduces the effects of age using a compound wash, first making the rug look old and then lightening hue. Even the brightest colors can be adjusted to smooth pastels through oxidation and texture becomes softer, taking on the feel of a museum rug. The process is normally used on Oriental pieces with traditional designs, but we can apply Antique Wash to almost any oriental rug and replicate an antique look.

Clients can select from the following wash levels and finishes:

Antique Rug Washes:

  1. Heavy Antique Rug Wash: bleaches color to the maximum.

  2. Medium Antique Rug Wash: expect about 50% reduction in colors.

  3. Light Antique Rug Wash: maintains colors, aging the rug with a slight oxidation.

Types of Finishes:

  1. White finish: produces a white or off-white color to the main field of the rug.

  2. Grey finish: results in a grey, silver or platinum color shades.

  3. Distressed: generates authentic looking blemishes, like patches on old, distressed blue jeans.

  4. Mirage or ghost finish: creates one color with a slight differentiation of hue, almost like a canvas. Faint traces of the original design are visible.

NOTE:  Prior to selecting the type of finish, we advise that you provide Rug Wash Inc. with a picture of your rug. Please keep in mind that original rug color will influence the final color to some degree.
