TURKISH VS. PERSIAN KNOTS

Turkish knots or Ghiordes are symmetrical knots having(double knotting) two warps.

Each end of the pile thread is wrapped all the way around the two warps, pulled downward, and then cut.

Persian knots are asymmetrical single knots. While one end of the thread is wrapped all the way around the warp, the other end goes just beside the other warp. After this, both ends are pulled downward and cut. Handmade Persian rugs repair can be complicated to deal with so only trust our professionals.
