You have set your furniture. All fabrics, antiques, paintings, wall hangings, and all other decor are placed right in synchrony. You also made sure to add a touch of green with indoor plants. But still, when you enter the room, there’s a lot of negative, white space creating a bland texture to your decor. So what’s the solution?

Delicately woven, exotic silk rugs! The intricately designed, finely stitched silk floorcloths not only lift the aesthetics of your home interior, but also give a unique traditional hint to your space. This blog will guide you through everything you need to know about silk carpets. Let’s dive in.

What are Silk Rugs?

Silk Rugs are hand-woven carpets made of silk, usually with beautiful and intricate patterns. As natural silk is expensive, hard to cultivate, and very fine – usually thinner than human hair – silk carpets are considered to be a symbol of luxury and sophistication. These rugs are extremely thin, soft, and comfortable, but they are also significantly more expensive than rugs made of other natural fibres like cotton or wool.

Different Types of Silk Rugs

You can divide silk-woven rugs into two categories - either by material or by place of origin. Speaking of materials, rugs can be made from either pure rugs or a blend of silk with some other fabric. On the other hand, silk mats are woven by different methods in different regions. Here’s how they are different.

Silk Persian rugs

Silk Persian rugs are one of the most famous and sought-after rugs across the globe. They are known for intricate, ethnic designs and patterns, colour-rich fabrics, and high-quality craftsmanship. Qum rugs, Tabriz, Isfahan, etc. are some of the widely sought-after silk Persian carpets. The detailed floral designs and vibrant colours make it the perfect fit to make your room traditionally rich.

Silk Turkish Rugs

If you are looking for exquisite beauty with a luxurious feel with fine texture, then Turkish silk carpets are your rug option. Artisans use traditional techniques to weave them and make sure they excel in all standards of quality. You will find these rugs mostly in geometric and floral patterns depicting various intriguing calligraphy and hunting scenes. Hereke, Doğubayazıt, and Yörük are some of the famous Turkish rugs.

Silk Kashmiri Rugs

Kashmiri rugs are traditionally woven carpets that combine silk with pashmina wool. These rugs are rich with warmth, durability and softness and give unmatchable warmth and smooth texture. But unlike other ones, Kashmiri carpets need special care and do not allow rough vacuum cleaning.

6 Reasons Why you Should Buy Silk Carpets

Besides giving an ethnic, elegant look to your space, there are innumerable reasons to go for silk carpets. Here are some of them.

Limitless elegance and timeless beauty

Want your room to reflect exquisite beauty along with a luxurious appeal? The natural lustre of the handloom fibres makes silk mats the best solution for your decor needs, adding opulence. Whether living room, or guest lounge in your office, or the foot of your bed, silk mats will help you elevate the aesthetic appeal while removing negative space in the room.

Softness under your feet

One of the best features of a silk floorcloth is the softness given by the silk fabrics woven by skilled hands. The delicate fibres give you a plush, soft, and extremely spongy surface to walk on, giving a luxurious feel to your barefoot, making it a perfect choice for your bedrooms and family gathering spaces.

Long life

Silk carpets usually last an eternity. With the fibres intricately woven by the expert hands of artisans, these carpets are durable and resistant to problems like wear and tear, moisture, mould, mildew and more. The hard work that goes into weaving these carpets makes them strong and resilient, letting you use them for years.

Bright colours and hues in your room

Silk floorcloths are known for the vibrant and bright hues they bring to your room. The intricate patterns with the natural, matte glimmer of silk coupled with intense colours give an instant richness to your room. From traditional to contemporary and eclectic, get colourful designs that elevate your taste and preference.

Hypoallergenic Features

Are you someone allergic to dust and fibre mites? Carpets from artificial fibres often degrade the air quality in the room by paving the way for allergens and constant dust particles in the atmosphere. Carpets woven with natural fibres like silk will not allow any dust mites to settle and contribute to healthy, breathable surroundings.

Easy maintenance

Maintaining a rug made of silk is super easy and hassle-free. You can do regular vacuum cleaning and send them for professional cleaning once in a while to retain the natural sheen. The built-in stain-resistant feature in silk fibres keeps your rugs fresh and helps you remove spills with no extra effort.

How do Silk Carpets add Charm and Beauty to Your Space?

Silk carpets are perfect for adding character and depth to your homes. How, you ask? Let’s take a look at how rugs of silk elevate the aesthetics and feel of your living space.

Add colour to your decor

Silk is available in many vibrant colours, and picking the correct colours for your home can make a huge difference. If you have an extrovert personality, you should use contrasting colours for your rugs compared to your room - bright rugs for dark-painted rooms and vice-versa. If you’re an introvert or prefer subtly, then your rugs should blend in with the rest of your room.

Add another dimension with texture

Using interesting carpet textures adds visual richness to your floors. You can use 3D patterns to add literal depth to a flat floor, complimenting it with beautiful patterns and colours. Even with just 2D designs, you can feel 

Create a visual connection

Using similar texture and pattern for two different rugs will allow you to have visual symmetry where you place them, making the two places seem connected. On the other hand, the use of carpets with completely different designs will help you visually distinguish between the respective spaces, making them feel separated, even if they are in the same room!

Uplift boring spaces

Does your home have boring monochrome flooring? Silk mats can spruce things up for you! Choose the colours you find interesting, or which contrast beautifully with your floor and walls, and voila! And, you can swap the rugs with new ones whenever you want, making it an easy but effective customisation option.

Add a touch of premiumness

As we said before, silk is considered to be a luxury material ,and it’s pretty expensive too. So, decorating your home with carpets made of the material is quite a bougie move. It gives you a lot of bragging rights, and you’ll surely get a lot of compliments from anyone that enters your home. If leaving a lasting impression on your house guests is high on your priority list, then this is a worthy investment for you!

Some Trending Decor Tips with Silk Carpets

If you are wondering how silk rugs will lift your room, here are a few tips for you to play around with them.

Use bold hues for bold statements

Neutral mould is no longer the rule. If you have walls of monotones, then go for rugs that are bold in colour and design. For instance, rich burgundies and royal blue shades will not only enhance the visual impact but also add a touch of drama to your room. You can transform your place through these artistic statement pieces and unique canvas.

Go sustainable

A sustainable home interior is not just trending but helps you reflect a thoughtfully curated interior. Make sure your rugs have little to no artificial materials. Instead, you can use blends of jute, cotton, or wool to give your floors an authentic, seamlessly merged texture.

Abstract designs for artistic expressions

Geometric designs on silk rugs are gaining a lot of popularity. Such intrinsic abstract patterns will help you put depth into your home and help you make a visual statement. Such types of appealing carpets will trigger conversations, give a sensory appeal, and translate into a unique style.

Bring out the vintage vibes

Carpets have always been a symbol of culture and tradition. Traditionally crafted carpets like Persian or Turkish ones will add character to your decor while depicting a contemporary style through a sense of history. However, typically antique rugs will be a bit faded and come in worn-out textures and muted hues.

Top Tips You Should Know When Buying Silk Mats

Before you dive headfirst into buying silk rugs, here are a few points to remember.

  • Silk fabrics are very light to hold. Make sure the weaving is strong and resistant to tearing and knit tightly. To test the authenticity, pull a corner of the silk thread and burn it with an incense stick. If it smells like burning hair, then the fibre is real.
  • Note the detailing of the design. Traditional silk mats come with nuanced patterns and are completely hand-woven. You can very easily spot the difference between artificial machine-made and hand-knit ones.
  • Is the source trusted? You will find a lot of dealers selling silk-woven rugs but they are a very poor blend of all artificial fibers. Make sure you buy only from authentic sellers and that your rug comes with a silk mark.

How can you tell if a silk rug is authentic or fake?
