SOUF RUGS - Lavender Oriental Carpets

SOUF RUGS

SOUF TECHNIQUE IN RUGS

The Souf technique combines a design in raised (relief) pile with a flatwoven (in any one of several techniques) ground. Silk souf’s, often antique, originate from Kashan, but this high-low effect has been adopted in many modern carpet production regions. Passing one’s hand across a Souf gives a pleasant tactile sensation and one can trace out the design blindfolded. Souf’s are basically wall hangings and are not recommended for floor use. In general, any rug with two heights of pile can be considered a souf.
