Carpet making. Thousands of little tiny knots making a beautiful image

Emerson really liked this shop. She got to tie a knot on the loom. If you watch the process, you’re amazed at the amount of skill and length of time it takes to create the rugs. The backs are as beautiful as the fronts. The man showed us how they burn the back to get rid of “hairs and fuzzies” so the rug doesn’t slip on a smooth floor. Since we have three pyromaniacs- they really enjoyed this part of the process.
