Style of Cottage Rugs
Since carpets are woven for sale weavers must always learn new patterns. One way of achieving this is to copy another rug knot for knot. This is a common practice and can be very confusing to find a pattern typical of a particular area. In this case the weaving technique is the only way to determine the area of production. Another method of weaving in a particluar pattern would by via the aid of a cartoon. This is a skill utilised by the more skilled workshop weaver. Cottage weavers are used to following a drawing of a design to get the general shape and would fill in the details by eye. This is a more personal, natural way to achieve a certain style, and is typical of cottage style carpets and rugs.
