One of the key signs of quality Persian carpets is that they must be handmade. When we talk about handmade, we’re referring to hand-knotting. All authentic Persian rugs are hand-knotted. The higher a rugs knot-count the better quality the rug.
At Rugknots, our modern take on Persian rugs provide high-quality carpets as well as make a statement in any room.
The Origin of the Hand-Knotting Process
The knots, first introduced in ancient Persia, now Iran, are considered the key to high-quality carpets. Constructed of both wool and silk, handmade Persian carpets are an exciting home décor option every home and property owner should consider when interior designing. These stylish rugs can add a gorgeous pop of color or statement piece of art to any room.

Be Aware of Inferior Rug Making Techniques
Although hand-tufted rugs are technically crafted by hand, they are not usually considered "handmade" in the traditional sense. Tufting produces inferior rugs because they lack the hand-knotting process of real handmade carpets.
When a rug is made using this technique it is partially crafted by machine. Then the rest of the rug pattern is filled in with a tufting gun.
Quality Handmade Carpets Crafted in Pakistan
Due to trade sanctions placed on Iran, it can be very difficult to acquire an authentic Persian rug. Pak Persian rugs crafted in Pakistan, known for their floral based designs, are a more efficient and cost-effective alternative.
Rugs created in Pakistan are comparable to Persian rugs because of their superior knot-count and exquisite designs.
A Modern Take on Traditionally Designed Rugs
Here at Rugknots, we have authentic Persian handmade rugs for the modern consumer. These rugs are refurbished and overdyed. The overdyeing process allows these rugs to be brought back to life in vibrant color schemes.
