The hand-knitted silk carpets from Kashmir are famous all over the world for their softness and craftsmanship.
The colours of Silk Kashmiri carpet and its intricate knotted details differentiate it from any other carpet.
Characteristically, Kashmiri silk carpets have an amazingly innate attribute of displaying different colours when viewed from different angles or sides.
Often the colours tend to have a day-and-night variation in shades that seem to impart an illusion of viewing two carpets instead of the actual one carpet. (KNS)
