For centuries, Tibetans have been weaving and using carpets as bedding, saddle blankets and meditation mats in monasteries. As a means to making a living in a new land, these hardy Tibetan refugees received the support of the Swiss government and began a cottage industry of carpet weaving. Tibetan weaving is very much a separate category distinctively different than the main body of oriental rugs. To construct a hand-tufted rug, a cotton canvas is stretched on a frame to form the foundation of the rug. The design is drawn on the canvas in stencil or in outline form. Using a hooking tool, pile yarns are pushed through the foundation, making a loop, which is then cut giving the finished rug a plush or cut pile surface. Instead of the typical hand tied knots they loop the pile ply around the structure and a rod and then they cut the pile to release the rod.
The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities. Measurements may vary slightly.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. Overstock.com tries to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors

We are very happy with our new rug. It brightens the room. Of course it is doing the shedding that new rugs always do, but we expect that to stop in a few months. Overstock.com got the rug to us in a timely way (less than a week). We are very happy with the way everything went.Read More
