Silk rugs will represent the contrast between strength and delicacy in your space with the powerful shine of the finest silk.
Since silk is more toilsome to be obtained than wool, and silk, as a material, is finer and more delicate, silk rugs are always seen as the most valuable rugs and associated with luxury. The knot count in a rug, most of the time, is not the unit of value, however, when the issue is silk rugs, it certainly is because of the great effort. An average rug that is made of 100% silk, generally includes 750 to 2000 knots per square inch. This makes a great knot density and, cannot be compared to the rugs made of other materials.
Some silk rugs are vegetable-dyed, and most of them are softer in terms of the color palette. Soft pinks, baby blues, and peach tones combined with beige and ivory will brighten up your room. On the other hand, there are navy, maroon, and dark red combinations that look like just fresh out of a spectacular Ottoman palace. Due to the nature of the silk, real silk rugs slightly change in color depending on the perspective.
In terms of the motifs and patterns, silk rugs resemble traditional rugs, but due to their fine nature, with silk, it is possible to weave more detailed shapes, patterns, and motifs.
