Rug Of The Month October 2021: Hang By A Silk Thread – Svarga Plain ARS1A20

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

Our rug of the month October 2021 is a pure silk rug from the Svarga Plain Collection. This carpet collection offers plain-colored carpets made from 100 percent high-quality Chinese silk with a very cozy high-pile structure. A total of 1,400 colors are available for a Svarga Plain. For our rug of the month, we decided on the color ARS1A20, an elegant and reserved gray shade that particularly emphasizes the advantages of a pure silk carpet.

A Mistake In Greek History

The legend 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, which was hanging only by a thin thread, he willingly gave up the place and understood the lesson: Wealth and power do not offer protection from danger, but are often the cause. The origin of the saying “hang by a thread” is attributed to this story. It can be assumed that the saying is aimed at the fact that the thread must have been a very thin one, because that is undoubtedly a silk thread. But a silk thread does not tear.

The natural fiber silk has remarkable properties. The structure of the fiber is very fine and smooth, which is what makes silk so supple and soft. Of all natural fibers, it has the highest elasticity, one reason for its enormous tear resistance. The fact that silk threads are very thin enables a particularly high knot 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, it becomes an extremely luxurious furnishing element for living spaces.

Svarga Plain ARS1A20

Single-Colored But Not Monotonous

Our Svarga Plain ARS1A20 is a master of transformation. Depending on the incidence of light, the silky surface shimmers in a thousand shades of color. The shimmering of the only color shade makes the rug never appear monotonous. The soft gray plays with its surroundings, its sheen brings extraordinary exclusivity and comfort to every room.

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

Masterful Craftmanship

Making a pure silk rug with such a high knot density by hand takes several months. Dyeing the silk threads by hand alone is a laborious process. In our manufactory in Nepal, dyers and carpet weavers work who exercise their craftsmanship with years of experience. We at Mischioff appreciate this ability and ensure that it is preserved. A fair cooperation, fair remuneration and care for the living environment of our employees is important to us.

Many years ago we decided to work with the Swiss label STEP and to work together to ensure permanent and sustainable stability in the entire production process of our fair trade rugs. Even if a lot depends on silk threads in our carpet manufacture, there are never any dangers here.
