looking for the true silk carpets

by: tongda

Shopping for your home interiors and looking for the true silk carpets and rugs? Although purchasing these seems very easy but in reality this is not the case as you will have to be very careful while buying these.

It is another very helpful test differentiating true and artificial silk. To do this test take a very small fringe or a knot from the back of the Handmade rug. Burn this and check out its smell and ash. If the ash is soft and chalky and its smell is like that of burning paper then the rug is made from artificial silk but on the other hand if the burning smell is that of like burning hair and on burning the knot curls into small black ball type form then it is real silk carpet. As silk is a protein so it burns like protein.

Cocoon of silkworm is the source of true silk that is spun by the silk moth caterpillar. Silk is then harvested by boiling the cocoon along with silkworm. After boiling, the cocoon is freed from worm and unwound into single fiber.Wholesale diaper bags are very tightly woven with at least 200 knots per sq. inches and occasionally 500 or more knots. On the other hand artificial silk carpets has mostly less than 250 knots per sq inch. You can also check the fringe and feel the difference between these two.

Aubusson rug hooking kit and method for handicapped

Aubusson rug hooking kit and method for handicapped

A kit for making an aubusson rug comprised of a backing made of a flexible yet stable material with offset, intermittent holes, a hook with a handle, embroidery needle, yarn, diagrams and written instructions, all of which are packed in a bag or box. The silk rug also discloses a method of making a hooked rug comprised of filling in each backing hole following a chart or a pattern drawn or stamped on the backing and using a continuous length of yarn drawn through the offset intermittent holes to provide the effect of a hooked rug random looping.

This aubusson rugs relate to a craft kit, specifically hand rug hooking and needle art.

Traditional rug hooking dates back to the beginning of our country, when women often used old clothing to make floor coverings. The clothing was cut into strips and the strips were pulled through burlap or jute with a crude type of hook. The burlap or jute were actually discarded feed bags. As time went by, hooking rugs became an art, wherein women dyed old clothing, cut them into strips and made designs with them on burlap. Today the same craft is performed by many large hooking clubs throughout the country.

The traditional technique of making a hooked rug is as follows. A backing comprised of jute, burlap or monk cloth is first provided. Since this type of backing is woven, there are no noticeable holes in the backing. To make persian silk carpets with this technique, an instrument called a hook is used. An example of a hook used for hand hooking rugs may be seen in U.S. The Bailly hook produces a series of continuous loops made of yarn or fabric pulled through a canvas backing. Because the backing has very little stability, a taut stretching of the area being hooked is required. A hoop, which are two large round or oval rings, is usually used to produce the tautness. The backing material is held taut between these two rings. Another method of holding the backing taut is by stretching the aubusson rugs across the hooker's lap with the hooker sitting on both ends of the rug.

Aubusson rug with contours

Aubusson rug with contours

A aubusson rug having contours on the aubusson surface for the purpose of reducing the chance of a user slipping during aubusson is disclosed. The woven characteristic of the aubusson rug provides for some moisture absorption and the contours provide additional gripping for the user of the rug to help reduce the chance of slipping due to moisture accumulation on the rug, due, for example, to perspiration.

An existing solution to this problem is the use of an aubusson rug, often called a silk rug, yoga rug or an ashtanga rug, which is either placed on top of the aubusson mat, or used in lieu of an aubusson mat. The aubusson rug absorbs sweat, therefore decreasing the slipperiness of the aubusson surface. The most common aubusson rug is usually woven in a loom using a balanced weave. Although aubusson rugs absorb some sweat and condensation, there still exists the problem of slippage on the wet surface, which slippage makes a workout less effective and increases the risk of injury.

The present silk and wool mixed rug relates, in a first aspect, to a woven aubusson rug including contours woven into the rug in order to reduce the likelihood of slipping while exercising on the aubusson rug of the present invention. The contours reduce slippage by contacting various parts of the user's hands and feet and serving as a gripping surface to hold the user's hands and feet in place on the aubusson rug even if the aubusson rug has become wet, due, for example, to perspiration.

Thus, it is an objective of certain embodiments of the invention to provide an improved aubusson rug design which increases the stability and efficient movement of an user by reducing slipping due to moisture on the aubusson rug.

Advantageously, the contours of the persian silk rug  are oriented substantially perpendicular to the longer dimension of the rug  since generally the longer dimension of the rug  corresponds to the direction that the user will face when using the aubusson rug  , as discussed above. For example, the ridges  are oriented substantially perpendicular to the direction that the user will face. The ridges  reduce slipping by contact various parts of the user's hands and feet and serving as a grip to hold the user's hands and/or feet in place on the aubusson rugs  when the user has been perspiring.
