This is known as the most beautiful carpet around the world. As we know that handmadearea rug works the focal point of a room. I am going to tell you some characteristics of handmade Kashmir silk rug which will prove that this is the best choice to provide a luxurious look to a home.
Art and craftsmanship: Handmade Kashmir silk carpet is woven on a handloom by hand only. There is no electricity required for operating it and we always appreciate handmade things than machine-made. Handmade Kashmir carpet is famous for its intricate and “One of a kind” design which is inspired with Persian designs. Every Kashmir silk area rug contains a story. It is made in Persian designs like medallion Kashan, Open Kashan, Hamadan, Qum, Ardabil, Nain, etc. Sometimes they take inspiration from around like they use tree motifs, birds, animal motifs, etc. and this type of design called tree of life which is mostly used for wall hanging purpose.
Material of the rug: Kashmiri silk carpet is made in pure silk and cotton material. This is made in two types of techniques – Silk on silk and silk on cotton. In silk on silk, the warp and weft both are in pure mulberry silk. In silk on cotton carpet, the warp is in cotton and weft is in pure silk material. Silk on cotton material is less expensive than silk on silk carpet. Silk material is known as the most luxurious material which is very thin and suitable for making very small patterns in carpet.
Color Combinations: Handknotted silk area rug always woven in multi-colors. It contains approx. 7 to 35 colors in a single carpet. Due to the multi-color, it is easily blended with any type of accessories.
Highly Durable: Handmade silk area rug is a highly durable home décor product because it is made using inter-weaving technique by binding knot by knot and inch by inch. You can use it for more than 30 years if you maintain it perfectly. This is 100% hand washable but due to a luxurious item, I suggest you send it for the professional cleaning. Never use a hard brush or any chemical for removing spots from carpet otherwise the pile of carpet will lose the beauty.
Dyeing Process: For giving a perfect color combination, weavers use wet ding process. They use chrome dye for the perfect vibrant and 100% fixed color. The color of handmade silk area rug will never go to fade with the time duration. This is suitable for a low traffic area.
Due to the above features, a handmade silk area rug is known as the most luxurious home décor item worldwide for the traditional home. You can make a traditional and modern both type carpets in wool material but you cannot make a modern carpet in silk material.
