Concept

The knotting technique is a completely manual method, by which the yarn is firmly attached to the warp by knots. The type of knot and its thickness differentiate the types of rugs made with this elaborate manual method. The value, quality and durability of the rug are directly proportional to the number of knots employed.
The hand knotting allows for complex designs, its main characteristics are meticulous workmanship, the high number of knots per square metre and the wide range of colour combinations.
Indotibetan hand knotting technique is particular, brought to India by Tibetan refugees, while the “sumak” knotting technique has Persian origins.
