|Warp Depression:Full warp depression.
Full warp depression, a.k.a. double knotted. Each knot, or pixel, in a rug uses two adjacent warp threads. When the warps are not depressed, they sit on the same plane, so they appear flat on the back, and from the back you can see both nodes. When the warps are full depressed, one warp sits almost on top of the other warp, so when viewed from the back, one can only see one node of each knot.
