Hand-knotted rugs take time, expertise and a skilled hand – if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind design, this ancient method of producing rugs is by far the best option. They are found in some of the world’s most beautiful homes, and it’s not hard to see why: they are true masterpieces. And unlike other works of art, you can walk on these ones. In fact, their beautiful appearance belies the strength of their construction.
What You Should Know About Hand-Knotted Rugs
Complex and time-consuming, hand-knotted rugs are often hailed as works of art, and for very good reason. It takes a skilled weaver about one day to make 10,000 knots, and considering a fairly good quality rug will have 80+ knots per square inch (often more), you can imagine how long it would take to weave a sprawling rug. The greater the knots per square inch (KPSI), the better the quality. Of course, the material used will affect the KPSI, but the rule holds true: more knots means more quality, and as a buyer, you pay for this time and precision.
