Tai Ping Carpets

Silken Axminster



FINALIST



TaiPing_silken


SilkenAx is uniquely formulated to enhance the beauty of 1956 by Tai PingÍs Axminster creations. Its luminous effect stunningly approximates that of pure silk. However, this custom-dyed yarn is actually made from 100% nylon that offers the same luster and lightness of silk, but with greater strength and durability, at a fraction of the cost. While alternatives to silk are not entirely new to luxury rugs, 1956 by Tai PingÍs introduction of SilkenAx represents the first instance where this innovative fiber will be used in Axminster carpets. SilkenAx offers far better floor performance in terms of durability and resiliency than silk or viscose fibers, but with a similarly bright luster. Additionally, the fabric acquires a patina as it wears that further enhances the carpetÍs overall brightness. This effect can be seen most dramatically in smaller accent areas when contrasted against light to medium-colored background yarns for the brightest effect. Because SilkenAx it is still a finer material relative to other synthetic fibers, it is most effectively used as an accent texture in light and medium traffic areas, such as hotel guest rooms and corridors, meeting rooms, private offices, and executive lounges. It may also be used in certain more confined areas that see heavy traffic, provided it composes a limited portion of the design.
