About this Piece
A Saruq design carpet with pure silk pile hand woven on a cotton foundation to 256 knots per square inch.
Saruq rugs originate from the village of Saruq in western Iran, one of the most prominent regions for silk weaving since the 19th century. Internationally popular throughout the 20th century, Saruq carpets are identifiable by their intricate, arabesque floral patterns and combination of blue and red hues.
The original would have been woven in wool but this commission has a pure silk pile woven on a cotton foundation.
A bespoke commission hand woven in: Bhadohi, India
Knot Density: 256 knots per square inch
Materials: Pure silk pile woven on a cotton foundation
This carpet is in production. Due to the complexity of the hand-weaving process, it is expected to be ready April 2022.
Every rug design in the collection has a provenance researched from our archives which is hand woven in 100% organic silk onto a cotton yarn to a bespoke size by highly skilled weavers using knowledge passed on through generations. The family workshops in Uttar Pradesh, India have been personally visited by Robert and Henry Stamp of Brights of Nettlebed to ensure appropriate standards of human rights are respected and that the prices are extremely competitive. Only natural materials are used, which are stated on each rug along with the knots per inch and design origin.

Any silk rug in the collection can be woven to bespoke sizes, or special commissions can also be undertaken.
