This is a hand-knotted Tibet carpet, made of durable natural materials. Imperfections in the patterns and shape make this carpet unique and emphasise its authentic and traditional character.

A Tibet carpet is often made by nomads from Tibet.
The patterns are often simple and often divided into planes.
Tibetan carpets are made of goat's or sheep's wool, and often have natural colours, on a cotton warp (bobbin thread).
The carpets are of a thick and heavy quality. The colours are not uniform, due to the colour of the animal whose wool is used.
Nepalese rugs are excellent carpets for regular use, with high durability.
This is a used rug, which has become more beautiful and richer in character due to the natural ageing process.
