Expert Notes

Very finely knotted rug from India. We have counted knot density at 42x47 using a standard US Quarter (slightly smaller than 1"x1"), which translates to roughly 2,000+ KPSI. Again, a very finely knotted rug, executed by only the most experienced weavers. Seller notes size as 2'x3'. It is very difficult to properly photograph silk rugs, the face of the rug has a redish tone, while the reverse side is somewhat more rust color. This may be attributed to the way in which the fiber reflects light. This variety of unusually high knot count is extremely unique.
