What is bamboo silk?

Bamboo silk is one of the trendiest materials for the production of luxury contemporary art rugs.

Specifically, what is bamboo silk? This material is a plant-based yarn with multiple properties, which is appreciated as much for its aesthetics as for its durability and versatility. It has characteristics in common with silk of animal origin, but differs from the more precious silk obtained from silkworms in several respects.

How is bamboo silk obtained?

Bamboo silk is obtained by processing dried cellulose from the bamboo plant. The yarn obtained through this process has characteristics similar to those of silk of animal origin: the fibres are very fine, have a lustrous finish and have extraordinary strength properties.

The similarities between silk and bamboo silk end here. Silk of plant origin is also becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that it is much cheaper than silkworm silk. As it can be produced in larger quantities and in less time, the price of the product is considerably lower.

Due to its vegetable origin and biodegradability, bamboo silk is also the ideal material for those in search of sustainable and environmentally friendly luxury rugs.

This plant-based yarn is also fully consistent with the vegan lifestyle. Consequently, it can be used to decorate the spaces in the home that you prefer. Used on its own or in combination with other eco-friendly yarns such as linen and cotton, bamboo silk will add a refined and elegant touch to the environment.

The yarn made from bamboo wood is thin but very strong and, unlike the more famous animal silk, can also be used to make rugs for high-traffic rooms in the home.

The main properties of bamboo silk

Having clarified what bamboo silk is, let’s go on to list the merits of this natural material. This list is particularly long and it is good to know the main benefits of the yarn in order to be able to make an informed choice when deciding on the best materials for luxury rugs to use to furnish one’s home.

We have already mentioned that bamboo silk is excellent in terms of wear resistance. In addition, it has excellent antibacterial and hypoallergenic properties. This makes it particularly suitable for interior design choices in the presence of children or fragile individuals.

Bamboo silk is also waterproof and not prone to staining. Choosing it for a rug to be placed in rooms in the home such as the kitchen or living room therefore means being sure that there will be no problems in the event of liquids or food spills. In the event that the rug gets wet, the fine yarn allows it to dry quickly without the risk of discolouration or damage to the fabric.

Bamboo silk yarn also has a remarkable thermoregulating capacity. When used to make rugs, it provides good thermal insulation and offers coolness in the summer months and warmth in the winter months.
Finally, bamboo silk is soft to the touch. Walking barefoot on a rug made of this.

All the advantages of bamboo silk rugs

Bamboo silk rugs have similar characteristics to animal silk rugs, with the added advantage of being more versatile and more durable.

In fact, a bamboo silk rug can be used in all rooms of the house. Thanks to its resistance to wear and tear and humidity, bamboo silk can be placed in both busy rooms in the home, such as entrance halls and hallways, and in areas of the home subject to temperature fluctuations and high humidity, such as kitchens and bathrooms.

The versatility of luxury bamboo silk rugs is also expressed in other ways. In addition to floors, these rugs can also beautifully decorate the walls of the home. From this point of view, the lustre of the yarn also provides plays of light and perspective, which give the room a particularly interesting scenic effect.

The unique combination of elegance and durability of bamboo silk means that this yarn can also be used for large rugs or rugs with unusual shapes. Finally, once it is well understood what bamboo silk is and what use can be made of it, it quickly becomes clear that, with this vegetable yarn, tailor-made designs and bold customisations can also be realised, thus designing unique rugs with a strong personality.
