Silk was first developed in ancient China and was originally reserved for royalty because of its unique qualities. Thankfully, its special qualities are, today, available to all. A silk rug is the most intricate type of hand knotted Oriental carpet due to its one-of-a-kind fine lustrous weave, copious detail, and rich color combinations. Our collection includes stunning examples of classic Persian Tabriz, Kashan, Qum, Isfahan and the Turkish Hereke.
Sari Silk is a unique yarn derived from recycled silk saris and embroideries. The yarn is put under a rigorous treatment and handspun to create a new silky fine yarn that is thick and great for the pile of rugs. Rugs with a sari silk pile with even a simple design will be complex, as the pile has a unique abrash with many colorways throughout creating a charming overall look.

WASHING AND FINISHING
The entire rug is put throught the process called binding and trimming, then it is washed and dried several times for vibrancy and sheen. The rug is laid flat on the ground, then fresh water is poured over it. The rug washers then use a wood plank, sharpened on one edge, to force the water through the rug pile. This removes impurities picked up during the creation process.
No backing is needed for a hand-knotted rug. The final steps include quality inspection of size, pile height and shearing. It is important to notice that each weaver or group of weavers adds personality to the new rug, no two rugs are ever the same and all of our handmade rugs are one-of-a-kind.
