With over 30 years of experience, Loomah are at the forefront of the design and supply of traditional and contemporary luxury bespoke carpets and rugs.

Loomah have such a diverse range of products and designs available and with endless possibilities in colour, material and texture, we understand the process of commissioning a custom made carpet or rug can be overwhelming. In a series of blog posts, we will explore the myriad of materials and techniques available and their unique properties to help you create a bespoke carpet or rug that is truly unique to you.

In the last of our series, we are focusing on synthetic silk. Synthetic silk is becoming increasingly popular for clients looking for carpets and rugs that not only look and feel sumptuous, but durable too.

Loomah use only the finest materials available. Our synthetic silk yarn blends the finest polyamide 6.6 fibres with a revolutionary low VOC backing. This unique backing (the first of its kind) contains no styrene butadiene (SBR), which provides a number of advantages including reduced flammability, absence of odour and easy fitting. The lower emissions of VOCs make it the ideal solution for the environmentally conscious. With 75% more longevity compared to most competitive nylon carpets, our unique blend is made to last so is kinder to our planet and to your budget.

It holds a strong resistance to mould and mildew, is naturally moth resistant and also meets the British standard BS4790 hot metal nut test for fire regulations, outperforming other fibres of its kind for its durability and maintenance properties.

Currently, Loomah’s synthetic silk range is limited to plain wall to wall carpets and loose laid rugs, however we are always looking to expand our offering.

Our range of synthetic silk carpets are available in a variety of colours and different pile heights to suit your individual requirements. Rugs can be custom made to your exact size and to add further interest we can add borders in a range of materials and colours including leather, suede and cotton.
