Traditional hand knotted Tibetan rugs straight from the loom. Lovingly crafted by Tibetan refugee artisans in Nepal.
Tibetan carpet making is a traditional art form that has been used to decorate floors, walls, horse saddles and the most sacred temples since ancient times. The special method of knotting is considered unique to this tradition and they are typically crafted from the wool of the Tibetan highland sheep.
Perhaps the most sought after rugs today are those that display traditional designs with Tigers or Snow Leopards being the subject matter. These rugs have a close association with Tantric Buddhism and can be traced back to the yogins of ancient India, where real Tiger pelts were used as meditation or yoga seats. Our woolen rugs closely resemble actual Tiger pelts and others are more abstract in nature. They are often very lively and imbued with their own unique character, making them highly desirable in and outside of Asia. We feel our rugs have a timeless quality and are at home in any modern living space or place of Dharma practice.
