Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How are the rugs woven?
Endless Knot rugs are produced on upright wooden looms using the centuries-old method of hand-knotting with the senneh loop as the knotting system. The wool in each rug is either a blend of the finest hand-spun New Zealand and Tibetan wool, or 100% Tibetan yarn. Silk may also be used as an accent to the design, or even used to weave the entire rug. After the yarn is hand-spun, the wool is saturated in Swiss Chrome dyes by the dye-master. Once dyed, they are rolled into a ball and ready for master weavers. After the carpet is woven, it is taken off the loom to be washed, trimmed, and dried.
