How to make handmade Rag rugs?


The difference between a hand-knotted and hand-woven rugHand-knotted and hand-woven rugs tend to be both created by hand, however, both employ a unique weaving strategy that affects their particular quality, texture, design complexity and cost. (there are various other rugs that claim to be “hand-made, ” including “hand-tufted, ” but this really is a marketing technique and not an authentic hand-made method.)

Hand-knotted rugs are nearly always more expensive than hand-woven, because their production procedure is much longer and much more complex. They will have finer details, are made of much better wool (it is size must provide for stack and extra to cut off) and need more skilled artisans. Both are great rugs, but which one is ‘better’ depends on just how it will likely be utilized and private inclination.
