Hand Knotted

 

  • The most labour-intensive weaving process, conducted by specially-trained artisans
  • Working off a rug map, artisans tie individual knots to build up the rug’s design one row at a time
  • The quality of a hand-knotted rug is determined by the number of knots per square inch (KSPI)
  • A higher KPSI requires greater skill on the part of the weaver and results in a higher-quality rug
