Two, touch


1 Touch the flatness of the carpet surface

The weaving process of handmade silk carpets is very particular. There are a total of more than a dozen steps. The trimming of the carpet surface has to be processed three times before and after to ensure that the length of the pile is consistent. The surface of a good handmade silk carpet must be very flat.

2 Touch the pile density of the carpet surface

The pile of the carpet has the effect of being resistant to trampling, abrasion, absorbing sound waves, and reducing noise. The denser the pile, the better the effect. The higher the quality of handmade silk carpet, the greater the pile density, so You can feel the texture of the carpet surface with your hands.


Here is a reminder to try not to choose a plush carpet. It looks velvety and beautiful on the surface, but the pile density is loose and the pile is easy to fall and deform. Such a carpet is not resistant to trampling, loses the unique performance of the carpet and is not durable.

3 Touch the direction of the pile on the carpet

The pile direction of handmade silk carpets should be the same, about 45 degrees with the warp and weft planes. After placing furniture on the carpet, the suede will not be overwhelmed directly. For woven carpets with a pile face of 90 degrees, the pile face will be overwhelmed directly after the furniture is placed, causing damage to the carpet.


Moreover, the hand-made silk carpet has a different touch on the forward and reverse sides. The smooth hand feel on the forward side and the reverse side feel will be slightly blocked.
