Straight from the loom: Traditional hand knotted Tibetan rugs from the Himalayas.
The traditional art form of Tibetan rug making 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 Tiger designs, as they have a close association with Tibetan Buddhism and can be traced back to the yogins of ancient India. Some of these rugs closely resemble actual Tiger pelts and others are more stylised and abstract in nature. They are often very lively and imbued with their own unique character, making them highly desirable in and outside of Asia.
