On a grey background, an open weave pattern in light grey, like the brush strokes of a watery wash on a painter’s canvas. A neutral grey-pink, and lighter grey layer shows through. On a field of Tibetan wool, the foreground texture is pure, high quality, Chinese silk. The effect of the sheen and luster of the silk is that the colors transform, and alter their shade from lighter to darker as the rug is viewed from different directions. The luminous effect imparts luxury to this highly textured design.

Quality: Gyantse (120 knots per sq. inch)

Dyes: Hand-mixed Swiss dyes

Raw Materials: Silk & 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.

A portion of your purchase will go to preserving Tibetan culture. Read about Ralo's Social Impact Initiatives here.
