Irregular bands of tangerine, brown and dark brown, pink, and deep gold, crossed and etched in horizontal and vertical striations of yellow, brown, gold, rosewood, and pink suggest the dramatic geological formations, and the brilliant, subtle coloration of a desert sunset.

Handcrafted in Nepal by Tibetan and Nepali Artisans
We start with Tibetan highland sheep's wool known as "Jampbel", which is prized for its luster, stain-resistance and durability. The wool is carefully prepared using traditional hand-spinning and hand-dyeing methods. Teams of weavers then expertly hand-knot the rug on a vertical loom for months, resulting in a distinctive rug that will increase in beauty over the years.
A portion of your purchase will go to preserving Tibetan culture. Read about Ralo's Social Impact Initiatives here.
