This hand woven Soumak, was specially handcrafted of silk and cotton in Iran. Soumak is a tapestry technique of weaving and decorative textiles used as rugs. It is a type of flat weave, somewhat resembling but stronger and thicker than kilim, with a smooth front face and a ragged back. Soumak lacks the slits characteristic of kilim, as it is usually woven with supplementary weft threads as continuous supports. The technique involves wrapping coloured weft threads over and under the warp threads, adding strength and embroidery like pattern. These textiles are home decoration pieces that will never go out of style and work well with range of room styles.
