The first difference in practice between Turkish and other carpets is that Turkish carpets are made usingĀ  a Turkish knot, so that each thread is secured at both ends
. One can not pull a thread out of a Turkish carpet
. However, when a rug is made with a single knot, a thread can be pulled out – from one end of the carpet (though not from the other end).

The second difference between Turkish carpets and carpets made with a single or Persian knot, is that Turkish carpets more labor intensive.
