Kashmir Silk Rugs: Luxurious Elegance for a Grand Interior

From the elegance of a real silk rug

Pure silk is a natural material that creates excitement and fascination like no other. It is soft, light, and elegant. It reflects the light and creates a noble shine. A hand-knotted silk rug is therefore a particularly valuable piece of handicraft. To this day, rugs made of the finest cashmere silk have lost none of their fascination. They are still considered luxury goods, whose quality is revealed at first sight.

The number of knots per square meter corresponds to the value and fineness of the material to be processed. Silk rugs are almost exclusively made in very high knotting densities. As a rule, by experienced and particularly talented weavers. The fine nature of the silk thread allows up to 1,000,000 knots per square meter. However, much higher knotting densities are possible with pure silk rugs. With 25 times 25 knots per square centimeter (!), however, the maximum possible density is reached. This corresponds to an incredible 6,000,000 knots per square meter.

From the silkworm to the precious cashmere silk rug

It all starts with the silkworm. After mating, the female lays up to 400 eggs. The caterpillars hatch and feed exclusively on the leaves of the mulberry tree. A month later, they begin to spin a cocoon around themselves. However, these breeding caterpillars will never hatch because their cocoon is too valuable. Up to 20 of these cocoons are unwound at the same time and processed into a single strand. Now the raw silk can be sold.

When making a rug, silk is used in many different ways. For example, it can be used to set visual accents. Then only certain pattern areas are knotted from pure silk to achieve stylish effects. Other rugs have only a silk pile, while the warp and weft are made of a different material. Only pure silk rugs have warp, weft and pile made of real silk. Silk rugs refrain from bright colors and patterns.

Silk rugs from different regions of the world

Today, most silk rugs are hand-knotted in China and India, as well as in Turkey and Iran. In India, especially the region of Kashmir is famous for its beautiful rugs, while in Turkey it is the cities of Hereke and Kayseri. Persian silk rugs also bear their origin in their name. Isfahan, Ghom and Tabriz stand for the high art of rug weaving. rugs from China are now strongly oriented to the patterns of Hereke and Ghom rugs but are - in terms of silk quality and knotting work - at the highest level.

The right care for your silk rug from Kashmir

As precious as silk rugs are, their care is relatively straightforward. Regular vacuuming - at least once a week - removes dust and dirt particles. Special attention should be paid to the direction of the pile, as silk rugs should not be vacuumed against the grain if possible. To protect the rug, it is also advisable to turn it every six months. Depending on the shape of the rug and the space, by 90 or 180 degrees. This way, one-sided wear is avoided and your silk rug will stay beautiful for a long time.

For smaller stains, a lint-free wool cloth and warm water are helpful. It is important to remove the stain by blotting and not by rubbing. If there are pressure marks, they can also be repaired with a damp cloth. Simply rub several times in the direction of the stroke over the affected area. In the case of heavier soiling, a professional rug cleaning will help your rug to shine again.
