ELTE viscose rugs are hand-knotted in India before being imported to Canada. These beautiful rugs often incorporate floral, geometric or unique organic patterns. Viscose rugs are part of the Tibetan rug collection. Often viscose rugs are blended with other rug materials such as wool and cotton.
Viscose is used for rugs because it adds a shiny texture to fibers, such as wool, that don’t have their own natural shine. This is handy because viscose can imitate a large variety of fibers such as silk, cotton, linen and wool. The viscose shine can enhance a rug pattern as well by adding subtle highlight throughout the pile. Viscose rugs need professional rug cleaning to ensure the fibers are maintained properly.
