AELFIE rugs are handmade in India using traditional weaving techniques. Each design is informed by founder Aelfie Oudghiri's thoughtful 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 her husband Hicham, daughter Mirah, and their cat, The Shah of Brooklyn.

AbOUT OUR RUGS

Aelfie rugs are wool/cotton blend, reversible dhurries that are ethically handwoven in northern India on floor looms. Our rugs are tough and meant to be walked and played on. Vacuum regularly and spot clean with a mild detergent. We advise that every 2 years you have your rug professionally cleaned. Rug pads are especially suggested for households with children and/or pets.

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: aelfie@aelfie.com We will respond promptly with more information, pricing, terms and conditions.
