About Silk and Silk Carpets
A lot of people think, a silk carpet or rug is not for using everyday.
There are a lot of people, who tell that a silk carpet can be used only for watching on the wall.
Booth is not (always) true.
People, who talk things like this to its customer may talk about a rug, which is produced with silk only in knots and the warp and weft are of cotton or wool. It also can be that the used silk is not the filament silk (what is the best), but the Staple fibre silk or worst, the Bourette silk. Further it could be that the carpets are knotted with the single persian knot in poor quality. Those silk rugs, of course, are not very durable and you can only watch them on the wall.
The durability of Hereke Silk Carpets
Aside from the characteristics of silk the high knot density and the double Turkish knots are cause for the durability of the Hereke Silk Carpets.
Why the kind of knots are so important?
If you already bought a carpet, it could be you astonished, why cleaning the carpet it leaves some or a lot of piles. The reason for that are both, the used and the quality of knots. The more piles a carpet leaves, the poorer is the quality of the knots and/or the less is the knot density.
