Jaipur oriental rugs (aka rajasthan) are those which were woven in the
the vicinity of Jaipur India.
jaipur rugs often have a medium
handle, and medium thick pile. Designs are often medium to larger
print, yet contain a fair amount of detail. Colors which are used vary
from bold reds and blues to earth tones as well. Jaipur rugs are often
found to have allover patterns, with few medallion and repeat patterns
woven. It is not unusual to find a Jaipur rug which has incorporated
both wool and artificial or true silk in the pile.

Quality of these rugs is most often measured by counting the square
knots, somewhat different than other Indian qualities. The square knot
means the vertical and horizontal knot count is the same: A Jaipur
woven in 6/6 quality is 6 knots vertical per inch, 6 knots horizontal
per inch = 36 kpsi. Jaipur rugs usually are found to have between 36
and 100 KPSI, however there are finer qualities as well and a one or
two coarser commercial qualities made as well.
