Hand Knotted Egyptian Silk Tree Of Life 400 kpsi Oriental Rug
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.
Silk Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various other benefits of silk that other fabrics, whether natural or man-made, simply cannot match. These advantages of silk have rightly earned silk its reputation as the queen of fabrics. Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cozy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly. While silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fiber and, surprisingly, it easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength. Silk mixes well with other animal and vegetable fibers.

Note :Dear 1800getarug Customer, Please be advised that the package size does not reflect the rugs actual size as many times it is folded and then rolled in order to meet FedEx and UPS shipping regulations. We have made every effort to display the colors of our rugs as accurate as possible. But the colors may vary depending on your monitor type and the illumination levels of your space.
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.
