Hand-tufted rug VS Hand-knotted rug
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.
