Carpet making is an art that has been passed from generations and is still at large. There are various methods of creating different types of carpet. Each of them requires a different style of making or weave-type. A craftsman of a particular technique (type) of making a carpet will not be able to make any other style, as it is entirely a different process. For instance, a Hand-Knotted carpet’s weaver will not be able to make a Hand-Tufted carpet, unless he’s trained for it and vice-versa.
Apart from weave-type, a carpet depends on color, design, pile, quality and material used.
