Michaelian and Kohlberg 5.9x10  Hand woven Nepalese rug has some wear & spots


Tibetan rug weaving is a significant craft that blends Tibetan weaving traditions in Nepal. The rug weaving art form is deeply rooted in Tibetan culture and history, but due to political and social factors, many Tibetan refugees established weaving communities in Nepal, particularly in Kathmandu and surrounding areas.


 Tibetan rug weaving involves traditional techniques, such as the Tbetan knot and knotting style, hand spinning wool, dyeing with synthetic and natural colors derived from plants and minerals, and hand knotting the rugs on vertical looms.


Tibetan rugs are known for both modern and contemporary designs and colors as well as traditional designs and patterns, often inspired by Tibetan cultural motifs such as Buddhist symbols, mandalas, and geometric shapes. These designs not only serve decorative purposes but often carry deep spiritual and cultural meanings.


 The primary material used in Tibetan rug weaving is wool sourced from highland sheep, which is known for its durability and natural luster. More recent introductions of silk and plant fibers such as help, Nettle (Aloo) and viscose may also be used to add richness to the designs. 


Social and Economic Impact: Tibetan rug weaving is not just an art form, but a lifeline for many Tibetans and Neplais in Nepal. By preserving their cultural heritage and traditional skills, these communities have not only created sustainable livelihoods but also contributed significantly to the local economy. This craft is a testament to the resilience and creativity of these communities, and their ability to thrive even in challenging circumstances.
