Antique Color Wash / Finish:
Antique wash finish, the term given to a compound wash, reproduces the effects of age. The brightest colors of a rug can be adjusted to smooth pasts through oxidation. The texture becomes softer and the overall feel is of a museum rug. It is normally used on a range of Chinese rugs which employ the more traditional designs and can sometimes be so authentic in appearance that experts have been fooled!
White / Silver Color Wash / Finish:
The antique wash for rugs includes applying a yellow tone to the rug which gives it that rich antique look, today, with white wash, you can achieve the same rich antique look without the yellow tone. The white / silver finish gives the rug material a richer, softer, nicer look and feel. Rugs that contain an antique wash finish can also have this yellow tone removed and have a white / silver finish.
