The knotting technique is a completely manual method, by which the wool is firmly attached to the warp by knots. The type of knot and its thickness differentiate the types of rugs made with this elaborate manual method. The value, quality and durability of the rug is directly proportional to the number of knots employed.
The hand knotting allows for complex designs, its main characteristics are meticulous workmanship, the high number of knots per square metre and the wide range of colour combinations.
The Indo-Tibetan knotting technique is particular, brought to India by Tibetan refugees, while the “sumak” knotting technique has Persian origins.
‘Kashmir’ captures the classical motifs of this region, originally hand embroydered ‘chainstitch’ on a cotton cloth, which we revisited with geometric lines. Handknotted indotibetan carpet in new zealand wool and viscose.
