The looms in nine are vertical with technical features to keep the warp taut the Weaver hangs different coloured balls of yarn above them and in front, of them, they place the pattern that they are following beside the loom the tools that they use is a knife with a hook on end a pair of scissors and a heavy comb to pack together the different weaves the weavers take a piece of yarn which they thread around to walk before tightening and cutting off the excess at times

The Weaver will change the colour of the yarn to follow the pattern when the rows are completed the weaver threads couple of weft threads between the warps to keep the knots in place before using the heavy comb to pack it all down when the carpet is finished, it is cut down from the loom, and the warp threads are tied together to form a fringe occasionally.

The short ends are decorated with a narrow woven edge skilled Weaver’s can handle approximately 8,000 knots per day on a rug with the width of a hundred centimetres and a knot density of 1million per square meter the Weaver may complete 8 millimetres per day if the carpet is 150 centimetres long it can take 200 days or approximately one year to complete cuff.
