Nowadays, it is common to find over-dyed carpets and rugs in Australian homes. It is becoming trendy because one can change the colour of their carpet cheaply. An over-dyed rug will undergo two treatments. The first phase involves stripping down the original colour using chemicals. The second step consists of the application of a vibrant-coloured dye that will make the carpet look like it has been painted using different tones of a single colour.
