Products :: Rugs

These are made on a loom, usually vertical, with a warp and a weft structure and knots. The warp is established from top to bottom of the loom and then weft threads are woven across the warp. After a weft has been woven a row of knots are made across and then further wefts added and then a further row of knots. Different villages and tribes use different numbers of wefts between each row of knots. Once the rug is finished the warps are tied off and become the fringe to the rug. In some areas these are braided or even made into a lattice. The knotted area, the pile, is then trimmed down to a smooth surface -- the pile thickness also varies according to a people's traditions. There are predominantly two kinds of knot, the Turkish or symmetrical knot and the Persian or asymetrical knot. The Turkish knot is a wrapping of the thread around two warp threads and is therefore thicker and more secure. The Persian knot is wrapped singly and is therefore thinner and less secure. The Perisan knot allows for a degree of fineness in design that the Turkish knot could not ordinarily match. It is helpful sometimes to describe the density of a particular rug by counting the number of knots per sq inch or per decimetre. Of course, Turkish knotting will tend to score lower. Each make of a rug will have a range of knot density associated with it. So it is not fair to discard a Turkish village rug because it only has 50 knots per sq in. It may nevertheless be a beautiful example of that location. But some pieces are exceptionally fine because of the knotting density level. We are offering currently a large Turkmen rug, a new one, which has almost 300 knots per sq in. Usually these sort of rugs achieve the density by using cotton for the warp but this particular example has used wool!
