Hand Knotted Versus Hand Tufted

There seems to be some confusion regarding hand made rugs; what's the difference between hand knotted and
hand tufted? For hand knotted rugs the warp is first woven, and then wool (or silk) pile threads are knotted onto
the vertical warp threads. 
The price of the rug depends on the number of knots due to the time taken.
For hand tufted rugs the wool is fired into a backing fabric by means of a hand held gun. When the design is 
complete, another cloth is glued to the back of the rug, which secures the wool and hides the ends. This process
is much quicker. This is of course reflected in the price. However there is no real value in such a rug.

Handwoven or handmade rugs are types of rugs where there are set of vertical strings attached to the loom and the wool is woven or hand-tied to form the rug. Hand-tufted rugs are wool mats which are made utilizing the tufting weapon. In this process, the professional loads the yarn onto the magazine frame and traces the pattern on the canvas.'
