Contemporary Knotted Rugs - Hand-knotted
Knotted weave refers to the method of weaving used in most rugs. In this technique, the rug is woven by a creation on knots. A short piece of yarn is tied around two neighboring warp strands creating a knot on the surface of the rug. After each row of knots is created, one or more strands of weft are passed through a complete set of warp strands. The weaving process begins at the bottom of the loom and moves upward as the horizontal rows of knots and wefts are added. Weaving a hand-knotted rug requires skill and time. The quality of a hand-knotted carpet is determined by the number of knots per square inch, and a higher density means better quality. Hand-knotted rugs can withstand high traffic, and will begin to wear out after 7 or more years of use.
