Tibet is the heaven on earth. The high altitude with deep blue sky without any pollution of modern industrializations where one can hear the peaceful sounds of chanting mantras from Buddhist monasteries and environment full of smells with incense is the place from where wool require for the rugs for your room is brought. This is the land of Tibetan where the nomadic herders have been grazing their sheep for centuries. Tibetan sheep grazed in this altitude is considered as the best in the world with high lustrous, good strength and long hair.
The wool is the beginning but most important part of the story in making your 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 looking after their children and their home works.
Tibetan refugees who were forced to flee leaving their homeland with barefoot over the snow covered mountain in 1959 when the Chinese fired on civilians mostly started weaving rugs in Nepal. They are the pioneer in commercializing of production of rugs in Nepal.
We are proud to preserve the thousands of old wonderful skills of human civilizations while considering the environment. Nepal is the only country in the world into which Tibetan fleeces can be imported. If any rugs maker apart from Tibetan and Nepalese manufacturer claim that their rugs are made using Himalayan wool is absolutely false.
