The Studio Producing MUNI CARPETS—“Han Zhan Ju”
Pile threads used in MUNI CARPETS are exclusively made from the finest quality virgin wool - three month-old Tanyang lambs and autumn wool from the Ningxia region. Such wool was used in the carpets presented to past emperors of China.
Pile threads used in MUNI CARPETS are hand-spun to withstand over 100 years of use. Hand-spun yarn, compared to machine-spun, is less prone to damage when twisted, more durable to friction as the fibers cling tightly together, and have better elasticity. Moreover, the unevenness of hand-spun yarn gives the carpets their unique finish.
Yarns used in MUNI CARPETS are dyed using only traditional, organic dyes. Colors formed by plants such as indigo, sappan wood, Japanese pagoda tree, and common gardenia are natural colors that evoke images of fields, mountains, the ocean and the sky, bringing peace to people’s minds. MUNI CARPETS are absolutely free of chemical substances to ensure safe and comfortable use.
