A rug can be weaved using multiple techniques. The texture of a rug is determined by the weaving technique used in its production. To judge the quality of the rug, a person shouldn’t just go by the design, but look at its construction.
Handtufting is a modern technique of weaving where an artisan starts with a sheet of canvas and pulls wool strands through the canvas using a tufting tool. It is partically made by hand and partially by mechanized tool.
Handknotted is an oriental technique of weaving where an artisan weaves on a loom by hand. Since each knot is tied by hand, these rugs take time to be weaved. These are heirlooms that one passes to the other generation if taken care of.
This is one of most precise manual weaving technique that is executed by highly skilled artisans. It involves vertical or horizontal looms. The basic concept of waving is to manually intersect the weft with “Tana-Bana”. The master craftsmen weave each carpet thread by thread with their hands to express their feeling with the motif of flowers and create different patterns and textures.
The most traditional technique used to produce a carpet is handweaving. Generally, this technique uses a weaving machine for crafting a carpet. The speciality of handwoven carpets is that they can be used both sides. At Qaaleen, we use blend machine to weave a carpet. Later on, a carpet needs to go several processes such as hand-tufting (if needed), washing, dyeing, drying, painting (if needed) before finishing or Shingar made by Qaaleen.
