- 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
|Time to Manufacture||Durability|
|Hand-Knotted||5-12 months||20+ years|
