Anatomy Of A Hand-Knotted Rug
Hand-knotted rugs consist of a warp, weft and knot/pile.
The knot is main outer/visible part of the rug which is tied on the warp. The warp are vertical threads that form the inner structure of the carpet. Once each row of the knotting is complete, a thread is run through the rug – this thread is called the weft.
