This skill was developed in the 7th century by east Turkistan, Mongolian, Chinese and Tibetan nomads, which were modified by Nepalese, with the inspiration of western designers for the developed modern society of world. It provides a wide range of design and color combinations, maintaining their fine appearance. Every single motif has special traditional meaning and significance.
Nepali carpet weaving, keeping with centuries of tradition and well-wrought skills, utilizes a simple vertical loom. While weaving, a row of pile yarns are knotted to the wrap yarns firstly. Next two weft yarns are woven through the wrap. The knots and weft yarns are then packed down tightly on previously woven rows with a comb like device. After knotting several rows, ends of pile yarns are cut to create and even rug surface. The knotting process is then repeated. The knot density of a Nepalese carpet ranges from 64, 80, 100, 225 knots per square inch.
