Are Silk Rugs Durable
As silk fibers with the same diameter as steel fibers are stronger than steel, silk rug is quite durable. Weavers would not be able to weave these intricate designs, at a knot count that can exceed 1500 knots per square inch for the finest of weaves, if the silk was not strong. Besides, those strands would break if the silk was not strong. Therefore, real silk rugs are thinner, more pliable, and much more detailed designs than any of other fake rugs.
