Hand knotted is a generalized word describing different types of rug making and not to be confused, not all hand-knotted rugs are of the same quality. Hand knotted, hand tufted or flat-weave are all hand-woven rugs, not necessarily made entirely by hand in some technique like hand tufted, but one must know the difference between them when purchasing a good quality rug.
Hand knotting process which as the name implies, means the knotting process is done entirely by hand, where wool or silk is knotted one by one. It is the traditional handmade process of rug making and the most desired technique for rug weaving. Hand knotting is significantly longer process of any other hand-made rug and requires skilled artists to produce them. The more knots per square inch the better and higher quality the rug is.
All of our rugs are hand-knotted using the best materials available in a high knot content, unless we specify a different technique for a particular rug, like hand tufted or flat weave, which are not the same and the process of weaving these rugs is different.
The best quality rugs are hand-knotted and are generally considered works of art.
We have hand-knotted, flat weave and hand tufted rugs which I love them all because of the design, color and of course quality.
