Savonnerie rugs along with Aubusson rugs have purely French designs with the occasional addition of Rococo elements. They are knotted like an oriental rug, on a cotton foundation. The pile is mostly wool, with occasional silk highlights.
Savonnerie rugs are some of the thickest hand knotted rugs with a soft and plush texture. They have been considered an important part of French decor for centuries. Since there is no weaving industry in France anymore, Savonnerie rugs nowadays are mostly made in Rajasthan, India and East Turkestan with the same exact weaving technique and material that was used in France for centuries.
