How are Tibetan Rugs Made?
Tibetan Double Dorje Carpet rugs are traditionally made from Tibetan highland sheep’s wool, called changpel. They are hand-knotted pile rugs made by Tibetan people using the Tibetan knot on vertical looms. Check Tibetan Rugs FAQ for more details.
In Nepal, the history of rug making began in 1959 when thousands of Tibetans fled from the Chinese Communist troops that had occupied their country. They found a new homeland in countries like India, Bhutan and mainly Nepal and began to earn a living by making rugs.
