Hand knotting is the oldest method of making rugs and originated in Central Asia over two thousand years ago. Creating a hand knotted rug requires exceptional craftsmanship and is very time intensive as each knot is tied by hand into cotton threads wrapped around a vertical loom. No latex/backing is required as each strand of fibre has been securely tied. A hand knotted rug is akin to a woven piece of art which requires the extremely skilled craftsperson to use their experience and ability to bring your chosen design to life.
There is a dialogue which exists between the weaver and the design which takes years to learn and thus brings with it a sense of unparalleled tradition and history. Due to the highly skilled and labour intensive nature of this process our hand knotted rugs take considerably longer to produce but we feel they are very much worth the wait.
