How Long Does It Take To Weave An Oriental Rug?

Before you begin weaving your own Oriental rug, consider this. Rug weaving is an art.  A skilled weaver can tie about 6,000 knots per day. Thus, the time for one person to knot a 9′ x 12′ rug in several common qualities works out like this:

Knots Per Square   Knots in a 9’X12′   Time Required To Weave                                  Inch                 Area Rug              9’X12′ Aree Rug

60                          933,120                 151 Days  (5 Months)

91                          1,415,232              237 Days  (7.9 Months

135                        2,099,520              348 Days  (11.5 Months

180                        2,799,360              464 Days  (15.5 Months)

The above estimates do not include the time needed to prepare the wool (for clipping, carding, spinning, and dying), to map the design (about 8 days), or to wash and clip the finished carpet (more than 15 days).
