The manufacturing process varies for different types of oriental rugs. The process that each rug undergoes to be manufactured depends on these three questions.
A hand-knotted rug is made on a loom sometimes by a number of artists. The wool is weaved in and out of weft to create the pattern of the rug. A weft is the threads that run from side to side on the loom when creating the hand-knotted rug. The more knots per inch the more durable and detailed the design will be.
Oriental rugs made completely by machine lack the artistic quality of an authentic hand-knotted rug. The machine-made process known as hand-tufting can sometimes be deceptive to buyers. When a rug is hand-tufted it is partially made by machine and then completed by hand by filling in the pattern with a tool or gun. Hand-tufted rugs are not comparable to the quality of a true, authentic oriental rug because they are not hand-knotted.
When an authentic oriental rug is created it can take anywhere from a couple of months to a couple of years to be completed. These rugs are priced based on history, beauty, material, and difficulty of craftsmanship.
