Most Tibetan rugs are currently being made in Nepal by Tibetan refugees, though we do carry some stunning rugs made in Tibet itself. Tibetan/Nepalese rugs are knotted differently from other types of oriental rugs. As a result, the designs tend to be simpler, which is appreciated by customers looking for a rug that is not "busy." These rugs are often made of handspun Tibetan wool and are thick and luxurious underfoot. The designs range from stylized Persian or traditional Tibetan designs to very contemporary designs. There are even some absolutely plain rugs that still have the wonderful texture and variations in the colors that can resemble a shimmering pool of water.
