Silk. The most luxurious material in the world. This ultra-thin finely spun yarn takes dyes in the most pure form and can be handwoven around the warp threads, or base, of the rug to incredible fineness. A work of art for the floor – or indeed, the wall!
Silk rugs are made in all sizes, including runner, round, and square.
Some ultra fine silk rugs are woven with gold thread, and other precious metals, to provide detailing and highlights. This art is much overlooked by the art world and the weavers able to hand knot hundreds of knots per square inch are disappearing. Invest in compelling beauty and craftsmanship while you can – what other art can you use and enjoy like this?!
