One of the main reasons that silk rugs are more expensive is because of the additional time taken to weave them. Silk is a lot finer than wool, the knot count in a hand crafted silk rug is often three or four times higher than the equivalent handmade wool carpet. The fineness of the silk means rugs can have a lot detail and colour and of course as you would expect silk carpets feel very luxurious.
In recent years we are finding fabulous hand crafted silk rugs from Kashmir which are beautiful crafted on a silk foundation. These rugs are often more affordable than traditional Persian Qum pieces and we think the quality is very comparable.
