Our woven rugs are lighter than the knotted ones but still sit tightly on the floor. To produce one 2×3 meter sized knotted rug takes about one month from a team of five people. One square meter of knotted rug weighs about 5 kilograms.
On the woven rugs the warps are horizontally on the loom and the woolen thread crosses the warps. One square meter weighs around two kilograms.
The woolen thread is taken through the cotton warps by hand. The looms don’t have pedals. The woolen thread is not is not cut as in the knotted rugs.
The woolen threads are bitten in tight using a bitter made of steel.
