A Brief History of Samoke Carpets

South Asian Samode PalaceA smoldering blend of smoky hues and abstract design defines the Samoke carpet. This hand-made masterpiece uses centuries old techniques to reinvent traditional motifs. Hand-knotted in Afghanistan, this unique carpet is made up of a combination of 95% pure lambs wool and 5% pure silk. It is also infused with 100% all natural colors made up of a blend of vegetable skin dyes and fruit skin dyes. The Samoke carpet embodies the exotic Samode palaces of South Asia with its distinctive design giving it a touch of the ethereal.
