 Types of Carpet >> Weave >> Hand Knotted Carpets

Eventually, the hand-knotted carpets and rugs are seen to be made all over the world. The quintessential style of carpets, hand knotted was originally seen in Asiatic locations. These highly prized specimens of floor coverings were later imitated by the European nations later. Such carpets are constructed by clipping the lengths of yarn. The clipped ends of the yarn form the pile of the carpet that are tied in rows crossways to warps. Each row of knots is separated by multiple picks of wefts, fixed in as interchanging series of plain weave.

There are various types of hand knotting techniques. They are as follows:

Turkish knot, or the symmetrical, or Ghiordes.

Persian knot, or the asymmetrical, or Senneh.

Jufti knot, or the resultant of the unison of Turkish and Persian but done on four weft strands, instead of two.

Spanish knot, or solo warp symmetrical knot.

Famous hand knotted Persian, Turkish specimens of carpets and rugs have been fascinating the world since centuries. Till today, there is a huge demand of such beauties in the Western markets. Materials such as cotton, silk, wool, and jute have also been used to knot such handmade marvels.
