Hand-knotted rugs are completely handmade, skilled and patient weavers spend substantial time weaving it. Unlike, hand-knotted rugs, hand-tufted rugs follows varying process. It is made by punching strands of wool into a canvas that is stretched on a frame with the help of a hand-operated tool. These can be in same level cut pile, high low cut pile, loop cut pile or all loop cut pile, depending upon the requirements. After piling with wool, the rug is removed from the frame, and a scrim fabric is glued to the back, more popularly known as latex. After the tufting is complete, the rug is then backed with a material referred to as a scrim. Furthermore, latex glue is used to adhere the scrim to the foundation cloth. After the backing is complete, the rug is trimmed, creating a cut pile, although sometimes loops are left as design elements. Hand tufted wool rug can also be carved to create additional design elements in the rug. To give a look of hand-knotted from front side a fringe is added by either sewing or gluing it on, otherwise it is locked/binded from all sides. This process is not as time taking as the previous one and also doesn't require same level of skill.

Wool is considered to be best which comes as Indian Bikaner, Blended (Indian -New Zealand ), or 100% New Zealand wool and thus we can say hand-tufted wool rugs are the best. One can also use silk which may be natural or artificial(viscose or art silk) linen yarn, hemp, bamboo silk or mix etc. These yarn will shed in the beginning but will gradually stop, as this is a natural property of the yarn and happens in all the cases.
