Pile in hand-made rugs

Pile in oriental rugs is the raised surface which is made of upright loops or strands of yarn.
When weaver ties the knots the excess of yarn makes the pile of the carpet, after making the rug or during weaving weavers clip the extra part of the yarn.
Height of the pile in oriental rugs does not make the quality of the rug. After weaving the rug it’s up to the rug-maker if they want to leave the pile higher or cut it shorter. Usually shorter the pile means higher amount of knots per square inch.
