What are the differences between hand knotted rugs, hand made rugs, tufted rugs, and machine made rugs?
Hand-knotted rugs are the only true oriental rugs. For a product to be labeled as hand-knotted, it must actually be knotted by hand. Hand-made or hand tufted rugs include hooked and needle point rugs. Tufted rugs can be made by hand or machine. The yarn is punched into a fabric and sometimes glue is used to keep it in place. A cotton material covers the back to make it look nicer. The machine made rugs that we sell are woven by machine and are of the highest quality.
