Whether the precious Ghom rug knotted in India and Iran or the Hereke made with about 1,000,000 knots per square meter from China and Turkey: Excellent and luxurious silk rugs buy conveniently through our online store!

What is special about oriental rugs and what makes them so unique?

The production of rugs goes back to a tradition that has lasted for thousands of years. Even before the birth of Christ, the peoples of Central and Central Asia decorated their tents with the woven works of art. In the late Middle Ages, court manufactories were founded by shahs, moguls and sultans, where the knotting techniques for oriental rugs were further refined. In general, the manufacture of these products, in addition to the regions already mentioned, also takes place in Tibet, the Caucasus, the Maghreb and Pakistan. The silk rug becomes exceptionally precious not only because of the use of pure silk, but also because of the number of knots per square meter. Because the denser this is, the more complex is the production, which gives the oriental rug its exclusivity and not least its durability. Furthermore, the value of such a work of art depends on the following factors:

  • Age
  • Origin
  • Color and pattern
  • Type of knotting
  • Material

The knotting density of a pure silk rug

Knotting density is the number of knots per square meter. However, this varies from country to country in which the rug was made. For example, the knot count in China is based on different assumptions than a hand-knotted silk rug from India. Therefore, you should note that depending on the region, there are different systems for indicating the knot density. We carry for you the highest quality oriental rugs from Turkey, China, India as well as Iran. Our exclusive silk rug uniques are without exception characterized by a particularly high knot density and the use of high-quality silk - another feature for the exclusivity of our products, which you can expect when you buy everything from our silk rugs.

What are the characteristics of silk rugs?

Pure silk rugs are famous all over the world and are considered the noblest and finest rugs of the Orient. Unlike Persian rugs, which often feature bold hues, most of our silk rugs are crafted in soft pastel tones. Nevertheless, strong color accents can be set on a silk rug with strong colors, such as red, or through natural tones, such as sand-colored nuances. Such products have a particularly long life and are often even inherited, since, for example, a hundred-year preservation use is not uncommon. The great silk rug knot density as well as the color brilliance make the rug of silk a special work of art with unique flair. Especially noble and unique silk rugs they furthermore also provided with a signature. In the signature, the knotting manufacture of the Turkish and Persian silk rugs is recorded.

What is actually silk? A short digression

Silk is a purely natural product and is produced by the mulberry moth, a butterfly originally native to China. 30 days after its birth, it begins to pupate and in the following three days produces a fine thread about 2800 m long. To put this into perspective, it takes one ton of silk cocoons to produce 115 kg of suitable raw silk for further processing, which in turn requires 50,000 caterpillars. Since a single cocoon thread is too fine for the production of rug silk, six to eleven threads at a time are taken together to form a raw silk thread. The coiled silk is boiled in a soapy liquor to remove the silk mucilage produced by the caterpillar as a binder and to make it pliable. Both the production of the cocoon and the breeding of new caterpillars and processing of the silk cocoon are extremely time consuming, which is what makes rug silk so valuable.

What is the best way to clean your silk rug?

We recommend that you clean your silk rug with little water and only with special cleaning agents that do not attack the material. Please always take care to preserve the structure as well as the shine of the rug, as hand-knotted rugs made of pure silk are very sensitive. If you want to clean your rug yourself, you can treat it with special agents or even with a damp cloth if it is not so dirty. If you do not want to take any risks, it is best to have it treated by experts in cleaning. This should always be done in a rug cleaning, as chemicals can attack the silk rug. Therefore, for everyday use in the home with a child and pets, a pure silk rug is not suitable, but as a decorative accessory conjures up a fascinating eye-catcher on any apartment wall.
