This abstract rug here it's a small rug, but this is a knotted rug and it's hand-knotted, and one of the ways you can tell is to look at the back of the rug and you'll see looking at this rock really close these fringes. They are an extension of the warp yarn, so this yarn right here is going all the way through the rug and coming out the other end of the rug. They set that up on a loom to form this rug.
So these cotton yarns here are foundation, yarns and they're simply an extension all the way out when they finish making the rug they'll cut that off the loom and there are other things they do. But basically, that's one of the easiest ways to tell how your rug is made another way is I see this pattern on the back of the rug, it's the same as the pattern on the front of the rug, because when they set the Loom up, they have These warp yarns and they form this pattern.
This is, has a wool face, yarn on it, and this wool goes around this foundation and they tie a knot and each one of these squares that you see this is a node and they tie those knots. That's where you get your hand, knotted there are different types of knots, but this is an indicator. You look for that and you see the little-dyed yarns that are going besides those those are weft yarns that are used to lock those knots in place. So this rug here this rug was made in India and it is a hand-knotted rug. It's wool on a cotton foundation.
Another kind of rug that is very common is a hand tufted rug, and this rug here from the face you can't really tell which is which. But if you look at the back of the rug, you can see this solid colored cloth. We call that a scrim or a muslin and it has this border. This has been glued to this rug. Here's handmade, but it's tufted, so they have a foundation similar to the way they do in a woven, rug or a knotted rug.
But then we use some sort of toughening gun and they'll tuft each of these knots in place, and then they'll lay latex behind them to secure them and put this backing on here to give the rug stability. So this is a hand, tufted rug. This is a hand-knotted rug. Another type of rug is very common. Is a machine woven rug.
