An exclusive hand-knotted carpet with silk details or a pure silk carpet are magnificent pieces of art. These carpets are considered to be among the most beautiful and valuable carpets in the world. The carpets are created in workshops by experienced weavers who have mastered the skillful techniques that have been perfected over generations. Habibian, Davari and Jamshidi are only a few of the famous and world renowned Persian master weaver names that craft these exclusive carpets.
In some exclusive carpets silk is used to enhance details and provide an incredible lustre that almost brings the carpet to life. These carpets are exceptionally detailed, have a knot density of at least 600,000 knots/m2 and are made using only the finest and most exclusive cork wool and natural silk.
When it comes to the most exclusive carpets of all, they are made entirely of silk with a warp, weft and pile of silk. They are made using the highest quality silk available and with a knot density of 850,000 knots/m2 to over one million. Silk is an extremely fine material that enables the weaver to create refined details and patterns, but it is an extremely difficult and lengthy process that requires a high level of concentration and skill to create a pure silk carpet.
These carpets are predominantly made in Persian workshops, but beautiful Indian Kashmir silk carpets, exclusive Turkish and Chinese Hereke carpets are also prime examples of this unparalleled art work.
