The Oldie soie stays true to the Oldie Collection with it's signature "lived-in" appearance but has the addition of thick and textured silk to the pile which creates a slight and elegant shine. The Himalayan wool and pure silk can be dyed in any color. After the hand-knotting is finished the artisan cuts some of the knots at random which open, covering the colorful dyed cotton pile creating the beautiful "lived-in" effect which has become the signature feel of the Oldie Collection. Absolutely no chemical or acid washes are ever used during production.
