Hand knotted

One of the most elaborate weaving techniques carried out by specialized artisans, the hand-knot requires an initial base, which is made by attaching the warp yarn to the loom, weaving the weft yarn to ensure stability. To create the surface of the rug, the artisans individually incorporate each knot, row by row. The type and thickness of the knot offers different results; the number of knots per square metre increases the quality, definition and durability of the rug. The Persian method is more traditional, with each knot individually cut by hand to create the pile. The Indo Nepal technique involves a rod that allows for an entire row of knots to be cut. Hand knotting is a slow process that allows for the creation of highly detailed patterns.
