These Carpets are manufacture in Asian countries, in particularly, Nepal, Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tibet, and China. Some of these carpets are considered as investment, because their value tends to appreciate with time. There are different types of hand-made carpets: knotted, tufted and flat weave.
Hand Knotted Carpets
Hand Tufted Carpets
Punching yarn in a cloth that is attached to a frame usually makes these carpets, and their backs are glued with latex for protection after the hooking of yarn is done. They are very plush, inexpensive and easier to make than hand knotted carpets. The technology is advancing in this field, and machines also are currently producing these carpets.
Flat Weave Carpets
These carpets are also called “Shaggy.” They are usually made of wool, cotton, bamboo, or nylon. They are easier to make and are lesser expensive. Because they are looped, these carpets can unravel if a thread is pulled.
