Fabulous vintage handmade tiger rug woven in traditional Tibet style. Excellent — close to mint — condition. Very heavy thick wool pile, cotton warp. Most likely yak wool from this region. This rug is so solid and heavy you could place it anywhere — including a very high foot traffic area.
I had one of these before and sold it — and I’ve been trying to find another ever since. Most tiger rugs from Asia are pretty light and not really suited for being walked on regularly. This one, however, is heavy duty.
Not an antique piece but visually stunning — and should last practically forever. 1970s -1980. From the Nepal – Tibet region of the Himalayas. Last photo shows the back of the rug. Size is 7 ft. by 4 ft. 7 in.
Price is $529. Shipping within U.S. is $43.
