Two pairs of bright scarlet phoenixes and dragons, one dragon whose mouth is issuing flame, face each other on a field of indigo. Cream-white, sage, blue, and rosewood cloud and rainbow motifs at the edge of the field suggest a meeting in the sky.
Quality: Gyantse (120 knots per sq. inch)
Dyes: Naturally sourced vegetal dyes
Raw Materials: 100% Tibetan Wool
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.
