Since time immemorial the enduring and eternal art of pure silk carpets & rugs have captivated the imagination of mankind. The lushness, luxury and the mystic of hand-made, hand-knotted silk carpets have epitomized our love for this ageless art.
For centuries now, families are known to have collected pure silk Kashmir carpets and rugs and have handed over the mantle of this treasured heirloom to the next generation. World over, museums and palaces, have an unforgettable tale behind each of the displayed Kashmir carpet or rug an extraordinary saga of every such stunning Kashmir carpet or rug with unique designs and spectacular hues and colors.
Due to the fine nature of the silk fiber, the weaver (artist) can weave exceedingly high knots per square meter thus creating incomparable designs and rare motifs like Aredbill, Mashad, Sabzevar, Sarouk, Tabrez, Shalimar, and many such exquisite patterns and motifs. All our pure silk Kashmir carpets & rugs are made with Persian styled knots, that means, the threads involved in tying a knot give the carpet added strength, durability and finer intricate design as compared with regular knotted carpets & rugs that often lead to mediocre or substandard workmanship and lesser life of the carpet or the rug.
It is for this reason, amongst many others, that our pure silk Kashmir carpets and rugs are termed as being the most superior in this category by connoisseurs who are unhesitant in proclaiming these as truly art collectibles.
Characteristically, all silk carpets have an amazingly innate attribute of displaying different colors when viewed from different angles or sides. Often the colors tend to have a day-and-night variation in shades that seem to impart an illusion of viewing two carpets instead of the actual one carpet. This change in look or color is entirely natural because of the luster, shine, pile and the weaving technique of the silk fiber that makes these silk carpets tremendously distinctive with extraordinary brilliance and are lovingly referred as magic carpets by hundreds of our customers!
NOTE: All our hand-knotted carpets and rugs come with a fringe (tassels) including this carpet. Wool and wool/silk blend carpets usually have a cotton fringe while all our silk carpets have a fringe made of 100% pure silk. The photographs have been cropped for aesthetics purpose only.
