This elegant hand knotted pile modern rug is made with sari silk pile. These luxurious fibers are dazzling to the eye, soft to the touch and extremely durable and long lasting. This wonderful carpet is made using remnant, re-spun silk from the mill ends of sari looms. Sari silk is varied and irregular and carries some of the residual colors of the saris they would have been. The variation of tone and texture along with the natural shine of silk work in unison to create a visual feast. The exciting design in this rug comes from the coarse textured knotting in this rug as well as the wonderful subdued colors. This rug is a visual treat.
