There are many stages involved weaving authentic hand-knotted rugs. First the wool is either sheared in the fall or spring. Second stage is to hand-spin the wool. Third stage is to wash the wool and dye it. The wool is all naturally dyed with natural ingredients which makes every rug unique.
This wool goes to weavers' homes or villages to be woven in the traditional way. Almost all these rugs are Turkish double knotted and wool on wool. The rug is washed after weaving and the fringes have to be tied or braided. At Karavan: Treasures From Turkey, we select from small productions, which preserve the human touch and concentrate on the qualities of the past.The Turkish knot, or symmetrical double knot, is common of rugs that are produced in Turkey and the Caucasus region.
