The Benares Rug is made of a particular type of silk used on Banarasi saris. This material feels shiny, and its vibrant patch patterns give your space a hint of tradition with an unexpected ultra-modern twist.

A Banarasi sari is a sari made in Varanasi, a city once known as Benares. The saris are among the finest saris in India and are known for their gold and silver brocade, fine silk and opulent embroidery. You will notice traces of such metallic brocade among silk in this beautiful rug.

This eco-friendly rug promotes the environmentally conscious practice of repurposing off-cuts of fabrics. Weavers handpick from a diverse variety of silk colours so no two rugs are alike.
