Oriental Rug Knotting
The number of knots per square inch determines the fineness of the carpet or rug. Typically, the more knots per square inch, the finer the knotting. However, a higher density of knots may not necessarily be an indication of quality. Although,knot density can help in determining where a carpet was woven. The basic principal of rug weaving involves alternating a horizontal row of knots with one or more rows of weft. Continuous rows of weft and knots are worked across the entire width of the loom. Once the warp threads, which run from top to bottom, have been stretched on the loom, the weaver creates each row of knots. A hooked knife is used to create each knot. After each row of knots has been completed, one or more rows of wefts are woven across the width of the loom. The purpose of the wefts is to help align the knots and create structural strength.
