Hand knotted Vs. Hand Woven rugs

Posted by in RUG-ART design journal

the concept of hand knotted rug vs. hand woven didn’t really occur to me until I begun to realize the number of times I hear people say and think, that hand woven rugs also means hand knotted rug. Not exactly. Hand woven is a generalized word describing different types of rug making and not to be confused, not all hand-woven 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.
