Contemporary Tibetan Rug N11184 8'0" × 9'10" $10,000
Although antique Tibetan rugs started out as a practical way of keeping one’s household warm, throughout the years, Tibetan carpets evolved to pieces of folk art. To weave a Tibetan rug is not an easy task. The base of a Tibetan rug is made of double layer of cross patterned threads that ensures its durability. Weavers use large needles, guiding rows of threads thought looms. Normal pieces usually have up to 10 knots per square centimeter, which results in a pile with a very unique texture. This is why contemporary Tibetan rugs are slowly, but steadily gaining more international attention. Nowhere else in the world you can find contemporary rugs which are as unique as Tibetan carpets.
This stunning contemporary Tibetan rug is the perfect mix of beauty and practicality. It was woven using a high quality blend of silk and wool. This combination resulted in a pile, which is not only as soft and elegant as silk carpet, but also very durable, making this rug a great investment for the future. The pattern of this piece contains an abstract arabesque-like design. Each turn and swirl is highlighted by a masterfully composed color palette of various shades of beige and brown with some gold undertones.
