Carpet made of/with silk

Hello everyone
Asking about the amount of silk used in a wall carpet (decorative carpets framed and attached on walls), one has asked the following question.

How much silk has this wall carpet been made of?

Does it sound normal to your ears? What about "made with"?
Although emphasis is on its preposition, other possible changes to this question can be helpful.

Thanks for making time

    I would talk about a carpet made from X kilos of silk, but I would ask "How much silk has gone into this carpet?"
