Options for 100% Silk Tufted Rugs?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I have fallen in love with the touch, the feel of Ligne Roset’s Silk Plush rug — I’m just not in love with the $960/sq meter cost. The rug is machine-tufted 100% pure silk. I feel certain it’s possible to find a rug of the same composition for less, but my google searches haven’t helped. Any suggestions? These rugs are heaven to touch & don’t shed even when pulled a bit. Thanks!
