approx 80 000 - 80 000 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.

Viscose (artificial silk)
Viscose is a man-made fibre based on natural materials such as cotton or cellulose. The material is very soft and shiny giving it a similar appearance to silk. It is often used to highlight details and provide a beautiful lustre otherwise only found in silk rugs.
Manual handicraft technique using special looms making work faster than traditional hand-knotting. Handloom weaving technique does not allow advanced patterns.
This carpet is hand knotted/woven; therefore, difference in shape, thickness, pattern and sizes can occur. This applies particularly to nomadic and village carpets.
