AELFIE rugs are handwoven in India using traditional weaving methods. Each design is informed by owner Aelfie Oudghiri's scholarly approach to textiles and evident love of color and play.
Aelfie bought her first rug as a teenager in Istanbul and began dealing textiles as a student in Columbia University's Department of Religion.
Her areas of interest are flatwoven tribal textiles and Soviet-era embroidery. She has designed for home, fashion and print. She lives with The Shah of Brooklyn (her cat) and husband Hicham in Brooklyn, NYC.

About Overdyeing Services
We are proud to have been named "Best Rug Dyers" by NY Magazine.
Before we take your rug or carpet, we make sure that it is suitable for being dyed. Certain materials, colors, and weaving styles don't dye or bleach well. We assess each rug individually and let you know if there are any obvious risks. We do our best to make sure that your rug will look fantastic. But because each rug is hand dyed, there is a human element that we cannot account for.
Please send an image, the size and desired color of your rug to: email@example.com We will respond promptly with more information, pricing, terms and conditions.
