FROM TATTERS TO TREASURE; THE STORY BEHIND OUR MOST LUMINOUS COLLECTION

Whenever a new addition to our Sari Silk Collection arrives in the showroom, we often find the whole team here is drawn to the jewel-like coloring and iridescence of these unique pieces as they are unwrapped. The designs featured in this collection have such a beautiful fluidity, there is something incredibly satisfying about both the visual and sustainable impact of these rugs.
These rugs are made of silk recycled from antique and damaged saris which have been deconstructed, re-spun into soft silk yarn, over-dyed and woven into unique rugs. This process results in an incredible movement of colour, as each individual piece of silk holds some element of its previous life and picks up on the dye in a totally unique way. The rich history of the materials used in this collection is something that really comes across in the immense impact they have when laid out in front of you. The decadent luster from the silk brings so much light and life to the colours, heightening the effect achieved through the dyeing process. The fact that the silk is recycled from old and damaged saris is preventing the wastage of masses of silk, and provides the collection with the one-of-a-kind nature it so effortlessly emits. Anything but effortless however, is the immense skill that is utilized in the fineness of the weaving. Using traditional weaving methods, the team of artisans located on the outskirts of Jaipur, India, have produced rugs that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
Every bit as unique and fascinating as the communities from which they come from, these rugs bring such a beautiful character to a space, adding to the life of the Sari Silk Collections’ origin. The full collection is available to view in our showroom.
