Traditionally Tibetan rugs are made from Tibetan highland sheep wool. Highland grasslands provide ultra-nourishment for the sheep lending to high quality wool. Quality weaving using highland sheep virgin wool involves hand carding the wool and knotting and spinning by hand. The Tibet knotting method is unique and different from those techniques typically used in making oriental and other rugs found worldwide. Tibetan rugs made from highland sheep wool are known for simple elegance and a soft, plush texture.
For the past 25 years I have had the honor and pleasure of cleaning some of the finest rugs in the world. I have found that the wool used in making Tibetan rugs combined with a unique weaving technique is a winning combination.
