Hand-tufted rug VS Hand-knotted rug

Although both hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs are made by hand, that is where the similarity ends. The process of creating both types of rugs is different not just in complexity, but also in the time it takes to create one, and the skill level required in manufacturing it. 

As a result of an entirely different process, the products end up having a different look and feel. For these reasons, these different types of rugs can also differ in longevity and cost. 

Before making a purchase, learn the key differences between the rugs. The difference between these two techniques are: 

A hand-knotted rug is a one-of-a-kind rug that is woven completely by hand on a special loom. Whereas a hand-tufted rug is made by punching strands of wool into a canvas that is stretched on a frame with the help of a hand-operated tool. 

Hand-knotted rugs have superior value because they are original, not mass-produced. The high quality of the knots makes a hand-knotted rug outlast a hand-tufted one. The tufts of a hand-tufted rug tend to loosen up and come out over time.

A hand-knotted rug can become a family heirloom and last for generations if it is used with care. A hand-tufted rug will not last as long in the same level of condition.
