Tibetan Rug 24" x 74"
Traditionally hand knotted by highly skilled Tibetan carpet weavers on traditional vertical looms. Woven with 100 knots per square inch, It can take a skilled carpet weaver on average of 2- 4 months to weave a rug depending upon its size.
Dense plush wool is sheared from Tibetan sheep grazing in high altitudes on the Tibetan plateau. The raw wool is hand spun into a fine, high quality yarn. Rug designs are drawn by Tibetan graph artists, weavers create the rug. These skills have been handed down for generations and the process of making a Tibetan carpet is done entirely by hand.
The high lanolin content of Tibetan wool provides a smooth, silky sheen while keeping the wool soft and supple. It acts as a natural anti-staining agent and the long fibers allow the dyes to permeate deeply thus preventing the rug from fading.
The wool is characteristically hard-wearing, strong and vibrant making it the finest natural fibre in the world for rug weaving. Rugs made from Tibetan sheep wool mature beautifully over time and last for generations. The high quality environmentally friendly dyes are resistant to fading and the rugs can be steam cleaned or washed with water based solutions.
