Our rugs are made entirely by hand
from yarn making, dyeing, weaving to finishing. Our rugs are made by ancient Tibetan rug weaving technique. Our rugs are woven on iron and wooden frame in vertical looms which is warped with cotton yarn from top to bottom. A metal rod is pushed horizontally across the warp and yarn is loop knotted over the rod, then onto the warp to make a pile. When the whole knot is made, a crossed cotton weft is put across to separate the pile, then combined and compacted with a wooden hammer. It is then slit with sharp blades across the metal rod to make a cut pile or pulled out a rod without cutting to make loop pile. This process is repeated until the rug is made.
Our knots density is measured by knots per square inch (KPSI) basis. We produce 45 knots, 60 knots, 80 knots, 100 knots, 120 knots, 150 knots and 200 knots per square inch rugs depends on the design and your requirements. Our standard and most popular quality is 100 knots which is good for simple to medium complex designs. 100 Knots means it has around 100 knots per square inch but sometimes knots density may be plus or minus to match the required designs accurately.
Knot count in our rug does not effect the quality of our rugs in terms of durability because whether it is higher knot counts or lower it is weaved in a same way of knotting technique. Knot count only effects the perfection of the designs, the higher knot means finer design. Knot is exactly like a computer or television screens as lots of pixels means high definition or clearer image.
Following are the picture of different knot samples, here you can see the difference of knots from 80 knots to 200 knots in a same design:
