About our rugs
Wool used in our rugs are brought from Tibet, across the high Himalayan with deep blue sky without any pollution of modern industrializations. Tibetan sheep grazed in high altitude is considered as the best in the world with high lustrous, good strength and long hair and rich and lanolin.
The wool is the beginning but most important part of the story in making rugs. Skilled people from high Himalayan to the village of Nepal are engaged in the process of cleaning of wool, carding, spinning of yarns, dyeing, weaving, trimming, Stretching and washing of finished rugs. Some of men and women works from their own home while they look after their children and their home works.
Tibetan refugees started weaving rugs in Nepal. They are the pioneer in commercializing of production of rugs in Nepal.
We are very proud to preserve the thousands of years old wonderful skills of human civilizations while considering the environment.
