Silk Rug

Weaving silk rugs is one of the thousands of arts from the land of Persia. Those who admire Persian silk rugs don’t see them as mere floor coverings; they value these works of art immensely and understand the creativity and passion that goes into making them because they know a rich culture and a long history behind them. The rug is perceived as originally a Persian product. In Iran and many other countries, Persian silk rugs are recognized for their charming designs. Most non-Persian rugs bear geometric patterns, whereas Persian silk rugs are mostly known for their flower gardens or miniature-style scenes.

While rug weaving is widely practiced in many Iranian cities, a few names stand out as producers of the finest rugs in the country. For instance, silk rugs from Tabriz, Qom, and Kashan are exceptionally famous and are even exported to other countries, especially those in Europe, where Persian silk rugs are trendy. In addition to those cities, others such as Nain also produce elegant fine-woven silk rugs.

Designing and making handmade Persian silk rugs is not only an artistic and traditional effort, but a commercial activity. Persian silk rugs are considered highly valuable, which is why their export to other countries would facilitate cultural exchange and familiarize non-Iranians with the Persian culture.

How are silk rugs made?

Silk rugs are not much different from other rugs in terms of production method, but what sets them apart is mostly the yarns and primary materials used in their making and designs.

Today, silk rugs come in two types: natural and artificial. Both types have a glossy look and eye-catching colors and are generally so similar that only experienced professionals can tell them apart.

Handmade silk rugs

So-called natural silk rugs were traditionally woven by hand using yarns from silkworm cocoons, making them even more expensive. 

Silk yarns are immensely soft and, surprisingly, very durable. The arrangement of diverse and charming colors of a silk rug and the tones created by sunlight bring out the true beauty of silk yarns and give interior designs a unique quality.

However, silk rugs are also made from artificial silk and, sometimes, use machines, which is why machine-made silk carpet costs less to produce.

Besides their beauty, silk rugs have many other advantages, including being pill-resistant and allergy-friendly. For various reasons, some rugs form pills, to which some people, especially children and those with respiratory diseases, are allergic. Silk rugs, by contrast, never have a pilling problem and are thus always allergen-free.

Silk rug care and maintenance

Silk rugs are thin and fragile, so make sure you don’t wash them too frequently because it can make them wear out and fade in color quickly. Accordingly, you shouldn’t use silk rugs in your children’s rooms, kitchen, and doorway, where they’re more likely to get dirty. Another thing to watch out for is high temperatures. In addition to silk, polyester yarns are also used in silk rugs, which is why the carpets get deformed on contact with hot objects, such as pots, clothes irons, and kettles. The damage is known as “burnt fibres.”Due to their thinness, silk rug fibres are very fragile and thus easy to fall apart under pressure and abrasion. So, make sure not to place chairs, beds, or other heavy objects on silk rugs.

Price of handmade silk rugs

The most expensive and luxurious Persian carpets are hand-woven silk carpets. Due to the use of pure and natural silk in their texture and the difficulty and time-consuming process of weaving silk carpets caused by the thinness of the silk threads, These carpets are costly compared to wool types.

Of course, the elegance of the silk threads and the precision in the texture of the silk carpet give them a unique and luxurious look.

Here at Cyruscrafts, you can buy luxury silk rugs at the best prices. Silk rug's price depends on the quality, knot density, design, ETC. It can approximately vary from $470 to $47000.

Different types of persian silk rugs

If you don’t know much about silk rugs, you might think all silk carpets are made the same way, only with different designs and colors, but you couldn’t be more wrong! Silk rugs come in three types. The first type is the “all-silk” and refers to rugs whose every part is silk. Another group of silk rugs uses silk yarns only for specific parts of their design, such as birds or flowers. This selective use of silk makes some design elements stand out and, in general, adds to the rug's charm. These are known as “silk flower” rugs.

The third type is called the "silk backing". Rugs of this type are harder to identify as silk because only their backing is made of silk. The other classes, however, often use yarns of different materials for the backing.

After learning all about the types of silk rugs and how to take care of them, you must have already decided to buy one.
