Huge mellow hand-woven Tibetan carpet in muted gentle colors. Very thick and heavy. Colors–all soft– include rose, blue, gold, gray and green. Quite neutral and will not clash with almost any imaginable decor.
Natural mountain wool on natural cotton. Thick and soft wool that will last for generations. The dyes appear all natural as well. Side cords and fringes in superlative condition.
A great choice for children or sizable pets that are often on the floor or galloping about on the hardwood floors. Also, an ideal option to quiet a room prone to echoes and noise. Perfect for yoga and meditation.
Exact size is 13 ft. 2 in. by 10 ft. in width. Still has the original price tag of $7,500 attached. The carpet is very heavy due to the thick wool–around 125 pounds.
Excellent overall condition with no signs of wear. Only flaw is a faint discoloration about 4 to 5 inches across that is only visible if you search for it in bright light (photo available on request).
Photo with coin is the back of the rug. The wrinkles are only from the rug being rolled up after washing and will come out easily once the rug is spread out on a floor and walked on.
Since the late 1950s when struggles between Tibetans and the Chinese People’s Republic became notably violent, many Tibetan rugs are woven in Nepal by refugees. Some rugs, however, continue to be woven in Tibet by traditional weavers.
Tibetan/Nepalese rugs are knotted distinctly from most types of oriental rugs, and the designs tend to be simpler. Using hand-carded and hand-spun local virgin wool, high in natural lanolin, the carpets are soft and luxurious underfoot.
Tibetan rug making is an ancient, traditional craft. They are generally made from Tibetan highland sheep’s wool, called changpel. Tibetans use rugs for many purposes ranging from flooring to wall hanging to horse saddles, though the most common use is as a seating carpet. A sleeping carpet is known as a khaden.
Shipping is $99 but that is a great bargain because actual shipping will be closer to $150 with FedEx ground. This rug is immensely thick and heavy.
