To create its hand woven carpets, Amini utilizes the best wool of the Tibetan plateau, obtained by flocks of sheep raised at more than three thousand meters above sea level, in an untouched environment. Wool is collected, washed and sewed by hand according to the tradition. This process creates a yarn that is very resistant and at the same time soft and bright, typical Tibetan quality.
NEW ZEALAND WOOL AND BLEND
It is thinner and longer than traditional wool, reason why it is a top quality material. This wool is well known for its functionality and appreciated for its resistance to trampling and stains, its durability, elasticity and colour fastness. Wool also gives some environmental advantages: it resists to flames, mould and it is hydrophobic.
This wool is thin, resistant, very bright and refined. Its fibres are naturally elastic, flame resistant and fold resistant.
Mohair is obtained by the fur of Agora goats, species raised in Turkey since the ancient times.
The wool obtained by Sardinian sheep has always been abundant and available; the composition
of its fibres leads it to be resistant and excellent for the creation of hand-made carpets.
Sericulture has very ancient origins that began in China in 2000 b.C. and only in 500 a.C. it spread further. This yarn, well known for its beauty, lightness and brightness, derives from the cultivation of the silkworm. The use of silk in carpets leads the creation of extremely high quality products, due to a very thin yarn that allows thin and compact knots and therefore to the definition and precision of every detail of the design.
Its look and some characteristics, such as brightness and softness, are similar
to natural silk but it represents a more sustainable and economic solution.
Artificial fibre produced by the pulp of wood. Unlike many artificial fibres, viscose is not synthetic. It can be produced from the pulp of different plants, natural raw material, cellulose-based. It is defined as "artificial" because to be extracted it undergoes to some steps in which the use of chemical substances is involved. Viscose is similar to silk, very soft and with bright colours.
It is extracted from the body of the 'cannabis sativa', Asian plant. It was the most utilized textile fibre until the diffusion of cotton.
Between natural fibres, it is considered one of the most resistant and it is highly appreciated for its thermo isolating and breathable effects.
It is obtained by the maceration of Corchorus plants. It is a very resistant material since it is composed by wooden substances.
The production of jute is mainly concentrated in India and Bangladesh.
It is the most important between vegetable fibres and the most utilized in the textile industry. It is a long and thin fibre, almost totally composed by cellulose, and its colours vary from white, to yellow, to brownish. It is resistant and absorbs humidity very efficiently.
