Silk has been used in the manufacture of handmade carpets and rugs for centuries.
It has become popular in the 21st century as the ultimate statement of luxury and modern silk rugs and silk carpets can be created simply as a plain colour or in modern designs and sometimes silk highlights are used in a fine wool carpet to enhance parts of the design.
‘It is just so handsome and the colors are just right! I am really so pleased and cannot thank you and the team enough for making the rug that I envisioned. With such appreciation,’
