RUG WEAVING TYPES

 

We provide oriental rug restoration in Portland. All hand woven rugs have a warp and weft from there things can vary quite a bit.  The diagram to the left shows a pile rug weaving using a Persian or asymmetrical knotting and double wefting. Contact us for more information about rug restoration

There are two knotting types used in rug weaving today the Persian/ Senneh (asymmetrical) and Turkish (symmetrical knot) while there are several other knotting types most rugs today use one of these two knots in weaving pile rugs.

Another rug weaving technique is Sumac weave. Wool yarn is wrapped around one or more warps. This method is often alternated with pile knotting as is shown in the rug weaving video above. This method is often mixed with knotted pile rug weaving   

Kilim weave is made with weft threads only Navajo rugs, Dhurries are examples of kilim weave  

Jufti knotting is a method of cutting corners with cheaper rugs.  Instead of a knot being tied over two warps its tied over 4 warps.

This technique is common in some vintage Persian/ Iranian rugs from 1950's onward.
