The predominant ingredient in our rugs is wool from the Tibetan mountain sheep.
This wool's naturally oily property gives a lustrous sheen and texture to the rug.
What's magical about this wool is that the more you use the rug, the shinier it gets. Unlike other wool, the strands of this wool remain upright once woven, so when you walk on our rugs or comb your fingers through the surface, the strands will not bend- they're good as new, every day!
We love to use natural fibres like Hemp, Nettle, Jute, Soya, Linen, and Allo in our rugs. Allo, or Himalayan Nettle, is a natural fibre extracted from the Cannabis plant. It grows naturally in high altitudes, and is light, strong, and has a silk-like sheen. Allo is said to have the longest fibre in the plant kingdom, making it ideal for carpets. Allo harvest and processing serves as a source of livelihood to numerous local mountain communities.
The lustrous Chinese Silk adds a touch of sophistication to any room.
When the silk is blended with Tibetan wool, it gives the rug a beautiful texture and shine.
Nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon.
The nylon comes in a dull and a shiny version, and dyes beautifully, making an ideal combination for hand knotted rugs.
Bamboo Silk & TENCEL™
Bamboo silk is a natural fibre extracted from the Bamboo plant, and is imported from China. It is an economical alternative to Chinese Silk and gives a gorgeous sheen to the rug when blended with wool.
Similarly, TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers with REFIBRA™ technology are manufactured in a closed-loop process by the company Lenzing. TENCEL™ makes for a economical replacement to Silk.
