This is the technique that is used to make fine Oriental carpets. Each piece of yarn is hand-knotted around a long piece of fiber; the higher the knot count, the finer the rug. Ours range from 40-300 knots per square inch. When all of the knots have been added, the edges of the rug are sewn by hand, and the face is hand-sheared. The drawing shows Barbara’s color directions for the weavers. We are a member of GoodWeave, which ensures that all of our rugs are child labor free.
