A Persian rug is woven on a handloom which is the perfect setup of wooden beams horizontally and vertically. It is operated by hand. No electricity is required for operating a handloom. Persian rug contains knots and pile and woven using knot by knot and inch by inch. It is made using hand-knotted technique which is also called interweaving method and that’s why it is a long lasting carpet and rug. Persian carpets are made in sometimes New Zealand wool and sometimes mountain wool material with the combination of cotton. A Persian rug takes many months to complete.
