There are three commonly used forms of knotting, in hand woven carpets Tibetan, Persian and Turkish knotting. We use Tibetan knotting in most of our collections except for our Jaipur collection, which is a Persian Weave. Tibetan knotting is made using a rod. The rod used determines the pile height of the finished carpet. The rod is placed through the width of the carpet and the weft is woven through it around two warp threads at a time. Once a line has been woven the part is bashed down and then cut, then the process is started again using the graph as a guide.
