Tibetan Tiger Rug 6 x 3 ft hand-knotted
Exclusive Tibetan Tiger rug, hand-knotted from wool.Tiger carpets are an important part of Tibetan culture. For centuries they have been used in monasteries and palaces to sit on and cover columns. The tiger symbolizes the power, strength and power of the ruler. Often these were also used as a seat for llamas to meditate.
Our collection of high-quality Tibet Tiger rugs is made in Nepal, Kathmandu by excellent artisans. In order to get as close as possible to the look of the ancient originals, we specifically looked for old women in small villages who can still master the art of hand spinning. This has not been common practice in the rug industry in Nepal for a number of years. Hand spinning gives the wool a certain irregularity in the yarn thickness, which is what gives this rug its special look.
The different yarns reflect light in different shades in order to achieve the incomparable appearance of these carpets.
The feel is particularly soft and cozy thanks to the use of the finest materials. The carpet is approx. 1/2 inch / 12 mm high.
