2. Hand Knotted Vs Hand Tufted rugs
Hand-tufted rugs are made using a tufting tool to punch the yarn into a fabric backing to hid the glue that is holding the rug together. The tufted rug process is very similar.

4. Know What Type Of Knot You Are Looking For
There are three main types of knots in a hand-knotted rug.
Persian Knot (Senneh Knot) / Turkish Knot (Ghiordes Knot)
The Persian knot is asymmetrical and open to one side. Persian knots are used to create more intricate curvilinear or floral patterns on hand knotted Persian rugs. Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet, and China are some of the places that is known for this knot. Instead of being tied around two warp threads, the weaver ties the knot around four. The weaver spends less time on the rug, resulting in lower value and quality.BUY NOW
5. Hand Knotted Rugs Can Be Woven Using Wool/Silk
Hand-knotted rugs will never be woven using synthetic materials like polypropylene, nylon, acrylic, or polyester. Silk Hand knotted area rugs that are woven from silk are stunningly luxurious. Silk, being an expensive material, rugs of this type have a higher price. Both of these resemble silk even at the chemical level. Bamboo silk, a naturally produce silk, is an excellent alternative to traditional silk.
Bamboo silk is more durable and more environmentally friendly like the naturally produced caterpillar silk. Both materials are made the same way, but just opt with bamboo silk, so we can save poor little silk caterpillar lives! Wool Rugs Sheared from a sheep, wool is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial and a renewable resource. The sheep are not hurt in the process.
Wool and Silk When an area rug is woven with the used of both wool and silk, usually the bulk of the rug is wool and silk is woven into the intricate design to create a sheen. Such as, this stunning grey Ikat area rug.

8. The Number Of Knots Will Determine The Value
The higher the knot count, the higher the value! Many factors go into determining the value of a hand-knotted rug. These include:
However, because of the time it takes for the artisan to individually wrap every knot and the amount of wool used in the process, knot count per square inch (KSPI) is one of the largest determinants of value. Just like thread count on sheets, the best hand-knotted rugs can start out at 50 KSPI and can reach over 1000.
9. Fringe Is Back! And It’s Important
Pay close attention to the fringe! Hand-tufted rugs are made using a tufting gun, which punches the traced pattern into a canvas. A decorative fringe is then added to give the appearance of a hand-knotted rug. In a hand-knotted rug, the fringe is a key component to holding the rug together. You will never see an authentically hand knotted rug with a glued or sewn on the fringe. The fringe is one of the defining characteristics of a hand-knotted rug. Here is how to tell the difference:
|-The fringe on the hand-knotted rug is a part of the weave of the rug.||-The fringe on the tufted the clearly and add on. -If you look closely, you can see the wrinkled edge of the sewn on the fringe.|

- The range of colors in vegetable dyes is limited.
- Look up the time period you rug is supposedly from.
- There is a limited range of dyes used in any specific time period.

22. Hand Knotted Rugs Need To Be Rotated
23. So There Maybe An Odor
24. Cleaning is Seriously Not That Bad!
Wool has a natural hydrophobic (water resistant) exterior but a hydrophilic (water absorbing) interior. This means that if water-based stains are cleaned within 15 minutes. But, if water sets in, the rug may develop on odor. This is why it is essential to have your wool hand-knotted rug professionally cleaned once a year. For subtle stains, first, soak up the stain with a dry paper towel. Then simply apply a cloth dampened with:
- 8 parts of water
- 1 part white vinegar
- A small quirt of a clear mild dish soap solution
Dab in the solution, never rub. Hand knotted wool rugs contain tiny pockets that hide dust and dirt exceptionally well. You will want to vacuum your wool rug one every 1-3 weeks.
25. Where Do I buy? How To Get A Deal?
The answer is simple, really. From the factory where it is made, to the supplier, to the seller, the rug can pass through 5-10 different hands. Your best bet at getting a great deal without sacrificing quality is a factory direct shop. RugKnots works factory direct and sells the best hand knotted rugs— meaning we do not pay a middle man, which means that you don't pay a middle man!

Amazing clarity I got thru this information..feel more confident to buy another one..
Hi there, thank you so much for this education!! Simply amazing. I was wondering though. What about overstock. There is a rug on there (her at oriental indo hand knotted rug) and says its 200kpsi, and “This rug was created in the Varanasi region of India. All washing, spinning and dyeing of the wool are by a village family at their home. Weavers of the Mahal design use the asymmetrical or Persian knot, giving their rugs exceptional softness and flexibility. Natural dyes are used to give the rugs their rich colors”. The rug is on sale for 900 dollars. I’m just not sure. It has all the positive things you listed except the type if wool. I have never ordered from overstock and know nothing about the brand. Could you please help?

@Norashikin, Thanks for your comments! We’re actually a family owned business and hand knot our rugs in Pakistan.
Thank you for the very informative article! There are many hand knotted rugs that have already been made by skilled knotters in the villages of Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. Do you buy from them directly? My husband and I are avid hand-knotted rug collectors and we buy from these knotters directly when we travel.
