Modern, Hand-Knotted, Tibetan Wool & Silk Rug, 3'x5'

Tibetan rug making is an ancient, traditional craft. Tibetan Rugs are traditionally made from Tibetan highlands sheep's wool, called changpel. Tibetans use rugs for many purposes ranging from flooring to wall hanging to horse saddles, though the most common use is as a seating carpet. The knotting method used in Tibetan rug making is different from that used in other rug making traditions worldwide. Especially yarn spinning and trimming of the pile after weaving.
