Understanding the charm of a Hand Knotted Rug
The earliest know record of a hand-knotted rug dates 2,400 years ago. Excavated in 1949 from the grave of a Scythian nobleman in the Pazyryk Valley in Siberia, the carpet was determined to have been woven in the 4th century B.C.
How is it possible that a centuries old design piece transcends time and lands happily in the most modern spaces? Beauty, quality and craftsmanship, thats how - because no matter what color, scale origin, or pattern, a quality hand-knotted rug never goes out of style.
With so many patterns, weaves and colors, it can be difficult to distinguish one type of rug from another. Please feel free to reach out and we will be happy to help!
Picture taken during our visit to the carpet belt of India, Bhadohi. Two brothers share a common space with their looms and weave during the day after performing their agricultural duties early in the morning. Its a way of life.
Even the woollen yarns used in the making of hand-knotted rugs are hand spun giving it the uneven look.
