Silk is a strong natural fiber that does not easily fray or split, making it a durable choice for a home decor investment piece that will last for years. Its strength and longevity make it a good choice for those looking to add a high-quality, long-lasting piece to their collection.
Tabriz rugs can be made with a variety of materials, including silk and wool pile on either a silk or cotton foundation. This means that the visible surface of the rug is made of silk or wool fibers, while the underlying structure is made of either silk or cotton.
In some rugs such as Tabriz rugs, the weavers will often use silk to accent and highlight certain designs in the rug. This helps to add touches of sheen to draw attention to different areas of the rug. In the Mahi design, silk was often used to create a shimmering effect with the leaves. This helped create a visually striking and luxurious look.
Silk Tabriz runners are available in lengths up to 18 feet while room-sized Silk Tabriz rugs range in size from 3 x 5 feet up to 10 x 13 feet and up.
