Wool

Wool carpets have had a reputation for quality and durability for hundreds of years. Synonymous with luxury, they remain an incredibly popular carpet of choice for homeowners and in the housebuilding and hospitality sectors.

Wool as a fibre can withstand pressure, has a beautiful aesthetic and excellent appearance retention properties. It is also incredibly long-lasting when properly cared for, making it an excellent investment when it becomes time to replace existing carpets. If you’re considering the purchase of a new carpet, wool is definitely a viable option.

Types of Wool Carpet

Wool carpets are primarily available in two different formats: 100% wool carpet or 80/20 wool mix carpets. Both blends can then be produced in both broadloom format or as carpet tiles, providing flexibility in installation method depending on where and how the wool carpets are being used. 

Natural Wool Carpet

The very best wool for 100% wool carpet production is 'string' wool. This type of wool can be found on sheep breeds located in Britain and New Zealand and many carpets contain both New Zealand wool and British wool.

Beyond sheep wool, natural wool carpets can also be produced from the fur of other animals with similar hairy coats such as llamas, alpacas, goats and even camels! 

80/20 Wool Carpet

Wool carpet has an intrinsic strength and doesn't necessarily need any other fiber to improve its performance, but in certain circumstances and for particular reasons it is often blended with other fibers, primarily man-made ones. These hybrids are referred to as 80/20 wool carpets, also called wool mix carpets.

Manufacturers may choose to use synthetic materials in the yarn for various reasons such as to improve fiber flexibility, stain resistance and durability, or to facilitate dyeing and printing.

Improving on the existing properties of wool carpets by adding synthetic fibers has made 80/20 wool carpets increasingly popular. A more durable carpet with the same aesthetic and ergonomic properties as 100% wool is a sound investment for any home or business owner.

Advantages of Wool Carpet

Whether you’re considering 100% natural wool carpet or an 80/20 wool mix, wool carpets have a wide range of advantages. Below, we’ll discuss a few of the pros of wool carpets. 

Durability

Wool provides superb performance with its long-lasting durability; it has a natural crimp, robustness and elasticity which means it can offer a 'bounce-back'. As such pile compression, tracking marks and shading are significantly reduced. This is why wool carpets are able to maintain such a good appearance over many years, if not decades.

Resistance to Dirt

Wool is a completely natural fiber containing natural oils. These oils are resistant to dirt and will repel other oil-based soiling. Plus, as wool is an opaque fiber, dirt will be harder to see so your carpet will naturally appear clean. For the most part, all you will need to keep your carpet looking good is regular vacuuming. 

Comfort and Warmth

There's nothing more luxurious than the comfort and warmth of a wool carpet. The wool acts as an insulator keeping your house warm, making it an energy efficient investment and a pleasure to have during the cold winter months. Wool will also absorb sound and will cushion the home against echoes and noise from the family. 

Fire Resistant

Wool is naturally fire resistant and has an extremely slow ignition rate. As such, wool carpets are an incredibly safe material to use for carpeting in the home or commercial setting. Should a fire break out, the carpet fibers will melt rather than burn slowing, if not preventing, the spread of the fire.

Natural and Sustainable

Wool grows on sheep or similar animals who require regular shearing. Shearing is a crucial part of caring for these animals and as such there is a fresh supply of wool available every year for the carpet industry making the material 100% natural and fully sustainable.

Biodegradable

Wool is biodegradable in soil, producing nitrogen, Sulphur, carbon dioxide and water which are all plant nutrients. This makes 100% wool carpets an excellent choice for flooring as we become more focused on the protection and preservation of the natural world. 

Natural Humidifier

As mentioned above, wool is highly absorbent. While this is not a desirable trait when it comes to staining, it can be beneficial for the household environment. When the air is humid, the wool carpet will absorb the excess moisture in the air. Consequently, when the air is drier, the fibers will release the moisture, thereby helping to keep the home’s moisture levels in balance.

For exceptionally damp areas, such as bathrooms or damp basements, the wool carpet may not be suitable, as it would rarely (if ever) have the opportunity to dry out, and could cause problems associated with the moisture retention, including mildew and mold.

In humid climate zones, with consistent year-round temperature and humidity levels, the use of a dehumidifier in the home would be recommended to avoid the same dangers of mildew and mold.

Disadvantages of Wool Carpet

Stain Resistance

Although wool is naturally resistant to soiling and oil-based liquids, it is prone to being stained by non-oil-based liquids, especially those with strong pigmentation such as wine or coffee. The colour of foreign bodies will stick to the wool fibers and can be difficulty to remove, if not impossible, so treat your wool carpet with care. 

Absorbency

Wool carpets are highly absorbent, and whilst this can be a good trait for removing humidity from the air, it’s not so good when it comes to spills or regular exposure to water, such as in or near a bathroom. Larger volumes of water can saturate wool fibers and over time can result in mildew forming, causing discoloration and an undesirable smell. 

Light Fastness

Another disadvantage of wool carpets is that they are sensitive to sunlight. Extended exposure to bright sunlight can cause the colours in the fibers to fade, spoiling the appearance of the carpet. A little sunlight every now and then will be fine, but wool carpets laid in an area that has constant sunlight all-day long are likely to lose their quality of appearance.

Silk

Pure silk carpets are a great adornment for living rooms, bedroom and dining rooms for your bespoke homes.

Due to the fine nature of the silk fiber, the weaver (artist) can weave exceedingly high knots per square feet thus creating incomparable designs.

Just like the fabric, silk carpets too are extremely luxurious and plush. They can be made of 100% silk or be a silk blend with wool that are hand-knotted. Silk carpets are typically thin and soft to touch and are one of the most expensive carpets in the world. The fine fibre makes them delicate and hence they should be used in low-traffic areas such as a formal drawing room or bedrooms to add a glamorous touch.

 

Advantages of silk carpets 

Natural fibers like silk and wool are categorized as protein fibers; as the source is animal.

A series of processes are done, before they can be used in the fine art of carpet weaving.

Durability

Silk fibers are most durable among other natural fibers. Silk is very soft and luxurious because it has proteins and amino acids. Silk mats and carpets are known for their strength for centuries. These rugs are mostly associated with royal families. Silk is extendable fiber and it is effortless to give it any shape.

The durability of the carpet increases manifold corresponding with the increase in the density of the knots per square inch in the carpet, as it is an established fact, that more the number of knots per square inch denotes more life for the carpet that in turn gives luster, shine and intricate design to the overall pattern or the motif of the carpet.

Strength

The silk fibers are made up of protein and amino acids. Silk is stronger as like steel. There are two types of rugs, handmade and machine made. The handmade fibers have a longer lifespan than others.  

Great Look

Silk fibers are stretchable and can be given different shapes. They are very soft, and it is very easy to give them different designs. When silk fibers are mixed with other high quality materials, they have a lovable look. Mixing with other rug materials does not damage them. Mixing silk with other materials make it affordable and less expensive.

 

Type of  Silk Carpet we provide

Different countries use different sources to get silk fibers. Carpets are usually made by mixing silk with other materials like jute, wool etc.

Bamboo Silk

Bamboo silk is the new arrival in rug fibers. These rugs present an attractive look in dining or living rooms. In other words, the best choice for home decoration. Bamboo silk is made from viscose and bamboo stalks. It is gaining popularity because it is a renewable fiber. Bamboo rugs are very beautiful and soft.  Bamboo rugs do not have real silk fibers. It contains rayon fiber which is very poor in moisture. Bamboo rugs are made by a combination of cotton and wool as well. These rugs present a lovely look and precious addition to your homes. It is essential to remember that these rugs should not be placed in traffic areas.

Kashmiri Silk

Kashmiri silk rugs and rugs are very suitable for decoration. They are traditional handmade rugs and add beauty. You can have a full decor for walls, floors and hangings. According to some researches, Kashmir silk is the best option for furnishing home. Kashmiri rugs are handmade and of pure silk. It takes much time to manufacture a single thing. There are two significant types of silk on silk and cotton on silk. Cotton on silk means silk on top while cotton is used as a foundation. Kashmiri silk products have natural designs. These designs may include flowers, branches and leaves of plants. Every single carpet presents a beautiful natural view. India is very famous for silk and its origin.

Wool and Bamboo Silk (Hand Knoted)

We produce following types of Rugs

Wool (Hand Knotted)

Viscose

Viscose, also known as rayon, is a man-made fabric produced by using carbon disulfide and sodium hydroxide to treat cellulose. Rayon is used to make shirts, curtains, jackets, area rugs, and dresses. It doesn’t trap heat and is cool to the touch. Viscose can be dyed in any color. Viscose may be combined with wool and cotton for a more durable, attractive rug. There are many wool and viscose  rugs available.

Noted for its genuine silk-like qualities (it is sometimes called art silk or bamboo silk), viscose is a versatile fiber which purportedly has the same comfort properties as natural fibers. It can imitate the look and texture of wool, cotton, linen, and silk though most often in rugs it looks like silk.

Viscose rugs shed easily, so avoid placing them in high-traffic areas. Viscose fibers can be bent by being walked on about 70 times. Take care to prevent spills on these rugs. Viscose tends to turn yellow when water or other liquids are spilled on it. If you see yellow spots on a viscose rug, it’s probably caused by someone spilling a drink or too much moisture in the room.

Viscose Rugs Made In India

Viscose rugs are very popular and they have become importers and Home Designer’s favorites. Hand knotted viscose carpets being the best, they are brilliantly handwoven in Hand-tufted, Handloom, and Dhurries as well. Their blending, especially with wool, adds together a unique and spicy style.

Viscose (Hand Knotted)

Wool and Viscose

It is the combination of viscose and wool taken in a certain ratio to weave a piece of rug. The viscose highlights the design and gives a fabulous and exquisite sheen and comfort.

Durability

Some fibers like wool, when blended with viscose, do make a creative difference. The blend does enhance the overall look, and they do the job quite well. These two blended fiber rugs do reinforce some durability but not as much as wool alone.

Viscose area rugs are also called ‘disposable rugs.’ Their fiber’s property is such that it does not allow it to last for too long. It is recommended to better avoid these rugs from placing in high foot-traffic areas.

Cotton

Cotton rugs are a popular choice, since the material is affordable, durable, and soft. They usually come in fun, playful colors, and have cool designs, but the hues tend to fade quicker on cotton rugs. They are normally very durable and soft, a rare mix to find. Most cotton rugs can be placed directly into the washing machine for cleaning, making them a breeze to maintain.

Jute Cotton Rug

Jute and Hemp

Made of natural fibres, these organic carpets are perfect for rooms that can do with a little bit of texture. Usually hand-woven by traditional weavers, these carpets are extremely durable. You can also use them as large-area rugs and layer other kinds of rugs over them.

Pros: These add an earthy charm to spaces. Also since jute fibres come from the plant's stalk, not its leaves, the material is wonderfully soft; it almost resembles wool.

Cons: Since this material is soft, it isn't ideal for high traffic areas. Jute is extremely porous, it collects dirt and stains easily. These carpets need to be vacuumed regularly.

Wool and Bamboo Silk

You might imagine that a rug made entirely of Bamboo silk would be the softest, shiniest, and most luxurious rug available... this is not the case. If the bamboo silk to wool ratio is greater than 30/70, you're going to have a real mess on your hands. If there is a spill, bamboo silk is incredibly permeable and can absorb the liquid almost instantaneously, making stain treatment impossible. Bamboo silk fibers, while not as fragile as traditional silk, are too sensitive to sustain heavy foot traffic or furniture on their own. To keep its shape and resiliency, bamboo silk requires a sturdy, soft fiber like wool.

Sea Grass

Sea Grass offers texture galore. Grown in saltwater marshes, it’s nonporous and thus incredibly water-resistant. Sea-grass fibers have a light sheen and often start out with a light-green tinge that fades to khaki. Sea-grass rugs are typically bound with cotton or leather and backed with latex, so while they’re not reversible, they do stay put.

Pros: Sea grass is stain-resistant and incredibly durable. It also feels better beneath bare feet than sisal, so it’s a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms.

Cons: Like most other natural-fiber rugs, sea-grass styles cannot be used outdoors. Because the fibers don’t take dye well, color choices are limited.

Seagrass Rug

Linen

Linen rugs are made from cellulose fiber derived from the flax plant. With a lustrous sheen, linen rugs can shine like silk but are very sturdy.

An ideal application for linen fiber is a sumac weave, which looks like small braids or a knit fabric.

This results in a flatter, non-pile appearance which is very durable and doesn’t crush. Like all plant fibers however, linen is porous and more prone to staining.

Linen rugs are a lovely choice for low traffic areas such as bedrooms and formal living spaces.
