New Moon produces hand-crafted rugs that are woven in Nepal, free from child labor. Made from 100% Tibetan wool and Chinese Silk, our Tibetan rugs range from traditional antique reproductions, Orientals and transitional designs, to contemporary and modern pieces. Based in Wilmington, Delaware, this family owned company provides quality, artisan area rugs worldwide.
Knot count is measured by the number of knots per square inch. Simply take a ruler and a fine pointed instrument and map out one inch horizontally and one inch vertically. Rugs tied with a Persian or Tibetan knot generally have a "depressed" warp, so only 1/2 of the knot shows on the back horizontally. Each warp counted horizontally multiplied by the number of knots vertically will give you the overall knot count.
Featured New Rug
"We have two New Moon 'Persia' rugs. They are the most beautiful pieces of furniture we own and they've been our best household investments. The carpets make our home warm and inviting, indeed they are 'art we use every day.' Our children learned to walk on them and in 10 years of heavy family use I can certify that the rugs seem to be made of iron as they've held up beautifully. We purchased the carpets through a dealer but when we've called New Moon in Delaware the staff have bent over backwards to be helpful. New Moon has great products made by great people!"
