Wow! Hand knotted rugs with cut pile often have a light and dark side. This is the result of weavers tying the knot with a downward or sometimes sideways motion while the carpet is strung on the loom. When viewing a carpet in person from eye height, the way your eye perceives the carpet is based on the environment and subject material: When viewing the “lighter side” of a carpet, the wool lays angled away from your eye, and the light is reflected upon the sides of the wool. When viewing from the dark side, the tips of the wool absorb light, and therefore the carpet appears darker. See if this video helps in your decision making process!
