Art silk is made from fibers of bamboo that is essentially a type of woody grass. To make the bamboo silk pile material for rugs, the plant must be disintegrated to extract cellulose fibers. These are soft and have a silky texture with subtle shine. The bamboo yarn is also known for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. China is the largest supplier of the bamboo silk pile, where the crop is cultivated in huge quantities. The process of extraction varies, and these cellulose fibers combed out to weave the soft yarn. The material is similar to silk and hence the name.

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.
