One of the best ways to add color to your décor is to go for a handmade rug. A handmade hand-knotted rug can last for generations. It is made by skilled artisans using ancestral know-how and by choosing to buy a handmade rug people are actively choosing to support artisans and the craft that has been their livelihood for centuries.

Each handmade rug is a unique work of art. No two handmade rugs can be alike, even if the design is similar. So, you are essentially bringing home a home décor product and an art piece you can walk on. Of all kinds of rugs, the handmade ones, especially the hand-knotted rugs are the most durable. Just like the art form, these rugs can be passed down through generations. Most handmade rugs end up as family heirlooms that several generations cherish.

A blue rug in great décor can be a great foundation for all kinds of décor paraphernalia for your blue décor theme. It is a solid central point for your room’s décor to come together and anchors all pieces of furniture, creating clear boundaries.

4. Overdyed rugs in blue

It is interesting to note that overdyed rugs are a great alternative to antique rugs. Given their cost, antique rugs might not fit every budget. But an overdyed blue rug is a great alternative to it. Overdyeing is the same as natural wear or corrosion from usage. It is a unique process that gives certain rugs an antique appearance. Overdyed rugs in blue are given a special kind of wash with a solution that eats up all the wool particles and leaves out the warp and the weft with traces of the old design. A washed rug is then overdyed using blue colour, which spreads unevenly across the rug and gives it a worn-out vintage appeal.

The Far East collection and the Lacuna (overdyed rugs) collections at Jaipur Rugs are two of the most loved vintage-inspired rug collections out there. These blue rugs are perfect for almost every room in your home. A blue rug from the Lacuna collection can add charm to the living room space.

Given the uniqueness of the pattern, it can be a great means of personal expression. With abstract blue rugs, you have the choice to go both bold and subtle.
