A carpet full of stories

Svarga SV08

The history of silk begins more than 5,000 years ago in China. The Chinese were able to keep the secret of its creation and production secret for many centuries. On the famous Silk Road, whose beginnings date back to the first century BC. Dating back to the 1st century BC, not only goods were traded, but also stories. Humans have always had a need to understand the inexplicable. And where there are no answers, he invents them.

The most beautiful stories, fairy tales, sagas and legends have their origin in the inexplicability of the world. And Marco Polo never tires of mentioning the countless musicians and storytellers on the Silk Road in his reports. With the Svarga SV08 we pay homage to the tradition of storytelling and the fine art of silk production in China.

A shaggy rug made of pure silk

The Svarga SV08 is a pure and deep-pile silk carpet that is made exclusively by hand. And as modern as this designer carpet appears to be, it contains a series of ancient myths and legends that only the precious material silk brings with it.

When the first caravans set off from the east to the west, loaded with the precious silk material, their path led through the inhumane Chinese Taklamakan Desert and also over the snow-covered passes of the Pamir Mountains. The journey from China to the Mediterranean took several years and new routes, new stopovers and trading camps were always created. What is now called the Silk Road is actually a network of thousands of routes.

of our silk carpet Svarga SV08 are reminiscent of the caravan routes of yesteryear. The shimmering white beige, which gently slides into darker beige and blue tones, slowly gives way to the first gray and blue tones and finally disappears into a glittering black and violet. The Svarga SV08 tells the stories of the starry night skies, the snowy mountain peaks and the sun-soaked sandy expanses of the desert. And he tells it with an eerie and almost mystical radiance and magic, as if non-human beings were actually at work here.

Spun myth

The people of that time who held the precious element silk in their hands for the first time also believed in magic. It had to be birds from paradise or divine animals that brought such a substance to earth. Do we know what it really was like? How might people have reacted when they realized that a small caterpillar was the origin of a cultural history that continues to this day?

It is said that two monks first smuggled a few silkworm eggs into Byzantium. Apparently in their walking sticks. But even if this was the beginning of silk production outside of China, the quality of Chinese silk is still unrivaled today. There is a secret in Chinese silk that can only be felt through sensual experience. Looking at the material with your eyes, touching it with your hands, placing a rug in your favorite room and then listening to the stories - it can't possibly be a little caterpillar.

Carpet trade without robbers and guns

Today, caravans no longer travel, there are no robbers with pistols lurking on the trade routes, and deserts and mountains are easily conquered. Today there are other challenges in the production and global trade of carpets. Mischioff carpets like the Svarga SV08 are hand-knotted over months in the Manufactory in Nepal. Ensuring the safety and well-being of the weavers is Mischioff's top priority.

With a partner like the Swiss fair trade label STEP, this works brilliantly. Fair trade means that everything is done fairly and transparently, from the procurement of the raw silk, to the first spun silk thread, to the finished carpet that is finally in your premises. A task that we take on with pleasure and with great care. You can be sure that we do not create any myths in these matters and that we do not allow ourselves to be told fairy tales.
