Specifications

Rug ID AXVZZH25
Knot density approx 1000 000 knots per m²

You can easily calculate the knot density yourself by counting the number of knots 1 cm down and 1 cm across, and then multiplying these numbers together. Then multiply the total by 10,000 to give the number of knots per m².

Some carpet sellers exaggerate the knot density, so to be sure that you are comparing like for like when it comes to price, it is worth checking the knot density yourself. Most of CarpetVista’s carpets have a photograph of the reverse with a ruler, making it easy to examine the knot quality and count the exact knot density before choosing your carpet.

Pile Silk
Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers available. Silk can be used to accentuate details in woolen rugs and in more exclusive rugs, silk can make up the entire pile and sometimes even the warp. Refined rugs with rich details can only be made using silk as other fibers are too thick for the purpose. Silk has a smooth, soft and lustrous texture with a natural beauty and sheen.

Manufacturing Knotted by hand
