The Shibori Collection

We are delighted to introduce our stylish new Shibori Rug Collection this season. The inspiration for this dynamic line comes from the ancient Japanese dyeing technique of Shibori, best identified by its fluid assortment of soft blurry-edged shapes. These original designs are crafted with high-quality wool, which is dyed by hand to deep saturated indigo hues that evoke the ocean and feelings of tranquility.

Japanese Shirbori techniques can be dated back to the 8th century as a method for dying textiles and kimonos. In order to achieve the desired tie-dyed look, the material was first twisted, crumpled and folded in a number of different ways and then dyed in rich indigo blue hues. Areas of the cloth were bound with dye resistant materials that would preserve areas of white in contrast with the indigo. With infinite variations to explore, this process has inspired designers all over the world to create new patterns and explore the endless possibilities of Shibori.

Our Shibori Collection celebrates this captivating art form. Due to their unique patterns and rich blue color palette, these versatile carpets can easily be incorporated into a number of contemporary interiors or function as a standout piece within a room. Sporting an array of inviting indigo shades, these stylish designs will add a sense of elegance and serenity to a space. As with all things handmade, each rug varies slightly in tone and style, further adding to the unique personality indicative of the traditional Shibori textiles.

Spotlight on Sari Silk

Move over grey and taupe! Bright and bold colors are making a comeback in the world of design. At SAMAD, we are now offering a range of vibrant hand-knotted rugs made with recycled sari silk, an eco-friendly material that is sure to make a statement in your interior.

Eco-Friendly Rug Making

Sari silk is a fabric made in India from recycled hand-spun silk leftover from sari making process. Rather than throwing out the extra scraps of the beautiful unused silk, sari manufactures have started sending their production “waste” to co-ops who hand-spin the raw silk into new spools of colorful yarn. The fibers are spun into thick or thin strands of yarn, which ultimately determine the knot-count and overall look of the finished rug. As with all handmade crafts, the yarn possesses a dynamic uneven texture that only adds to its personality and appeal. Unlike temperamental man-made fibers such as viscous, sari silk is spun from silk worms, which produce a fiber unparalleled in softness and durability. Woven together with high-quality New Zealand wool, each sari silk carpet is a unique piece of art that will last for years to come.

The Seville Collection is inspired by the striking landscapes of Andalusia, Spain and its celebrated Moorish imagery and artwork. With Mediterranean blues and deep taupes embellished with vibrant fuchsias and turquoises, these colorful designs evoke the lively spirit of Seville. The intricate blending of long staple wools and sari silk provide a unique multi-textural quality and sheen to this dynamic collection.

A punch of color can add a youthful touch that will embolden a neutral interior, without compromising the elegance of the space.
