When purchasing a silk rug, keep in mind that many are made of viscose rayon.
Wood pulp and cotton by-products are used to make viscose rayon.
Man-made silk is often a viscose fabric with a high price tag.
The viscose fiber is quite gentle. To generate this sumptuous feel, chemicals are employed to break down the fiber, resulting in an extremely weak viscose fiber. When you try to clean by yourself, you risk losing the luxurious feel as well as the “bright” appearance.
These rugs require extra attention and cleaning on a regular basis.
