Persian knot. Also called Senneh knot or asymmetrical rug knot. While sometimes called a Senneh knot, it should be noted that Senneh rugs use the symmetrical or Turkish knot.  The knotting pictured shows the rug knots opening to the left.  This is the most common style of Senneh knotting. Few Oriental rugs have the asymmetrical knot opening to the right.  This Senneh knot is found in many Persian workshop Oriental rugs such as those from Kashan, Qum, Kerman, Nain.
