By a thread

Svarga Plain ARS1A20

The phrase “hanging by a thread” means danger and threat. It suggests that a silk thread would not be safe and, above all, not tear-resistant. However, exactly the opposite is the case. So if your life ever hangs in the balance, sit back and relax, there is no need to panic.

Our inspiration presented here is a pure silk carpet from the Svarga Plain Collection. This carpet collection combines our plain-colored carpets made from 100 percent high-quality Chinese silk. A total of 1,400 colors are available for a Svarga Plain. For our inspiration, we chose the color ARS1A20, an elegant and reserved gray tone that particularly emphasizes the advantages of a pure silk carpet.

An error in Greek history

The story goes that Damocles envied his ruler Dionysius for his power and wealth. Dionysius then gave Damocles his place at the royal table. However, when Damocles noticed that there was a sword hanging over his head, hanging by only a thin thread, he willingly gave up the place, understanding the lesson: wealth and power do not provide protection from danger, but are often the cause of it. The origin of the expression “hanging by a thread” is attributed to this story. It can be assumed that the saying probably means that the thread must have been very thin, because it is undoubtedly a silk thread. But it usually doesn't tear.

The natural fiber silk has remarkable properties. The structure of the fiber is very fine and smooth, which makes silk so supple and soft. It has the highest elasticity of all natural fibers, which is one reason for its enormous tear resistance. The fact that silk threads are very thin enables a particularly high knotting density, especially when making carpets. Our Svarga Plain ARS1A20 has a knot density of 125,000 knots per square meter. Together with the pile height of 20 millimeters, this makes it an extremely luxurious furnishing element for living spaces.

Monochrome and yet not monotonous

Our Svarga Plain ARS1A20 is a master of transformation. Depending on the incidence of light, the silky surface shimmers in a thousand color nuances. The changing of the single color never makes the carpet appear monotonous. The soft gray plays with its surroundings and brings exceptional exclusivity and comfort to every room with its shine.

Thanks to their pile height, the carpets from the Svarga Plain Collection also ideal for dampening room sound. This ensures pleasant acoustics, especially in large rooms. This masterpiece of carpet art retains all its advantages even after years of use.

Masterful craftsmanship

a pure silk carpet with such a high knot density by hand takes several months. Just dyeing the silk threads by hand is a laborious process. In our Manufactory in Nepal, dyers and carpet weavers work with years of experience in their craftsmanship. We at Mischioff value this skill and ensure that it is preserved and preserved. Fair cooperation, fair remuneration and caring for the living environment of our employees are important to us.

Many years ago we decided to work with the Swiss label STEP and work together to ensure long-term and sustainable stability throughout the entire manufacturing process of our fair trade carpets . Even though a lot of things in our carpet manufactory depend on silk threads, there are never any dangers here.
