On the off chance that you are buying a Persian rug on the web, particularly pay attention to the knot count! On various events, we have seen people tallying a double ply knot as two separate instead of one single! In spite of the fact that there are numerous approaches to quantify your rugs knot count, as a rule, KPSI (Knots Per Square Inch) is the most widely recognised standard of measure in the world.
Look at the image below for directions on how you might check the knot count of your Persian rug. Like the pixels on a TV or PC screen the more pixel (or bunches) the clearer and more honed the picture. This is regularly measured by checking the knots on the back of the rug over a vertical and level crawl and duplicating the two numbers. For example a 12×12 rug in a square inch would have 144 KPSI.
The knot count can only be taken from the opposite side of the rug. Flip your rug over so the face is down, and the knots on back are uncovered. You will require a ruler, a paper clip (to indicate ties so you don’t lose spot) and a lot of light. Start including the measure of knots 1 inch left to right (horizontally recognised as the weft) as well as up and down (vertical: otherwise known as twist.) As you can find in the photo, a quarter is around 1″ x 1″. You might discover it simpler to take after an example or outline in the rug, the same number of comparable and contiguous hues tend to mix hitches.
When you have both the knot count of the ascent and run, increase them together, and you will concoct your KPSI. For best results, KPSI ought to be measured in 3 or more zones to locate a normal, as a few rugs have KPSI which may slightly differ.
