Tibetan rugs are defined by their hand-knotted construction and raw material, a wool sourced from the sheep of the highlands of Tibet. This wool, one the highest quality natural fibers in the world, is rich in lanolin. Lanolin is the safeguard of the fiber. It not only protects, but, once woven, results in an incredibly soft rug underfoot. The thick, dense pile of a Tibetan rug adds luxury and durability wherever it lands. While the color and design of Tibetan rugs varies immensely, they are often of the more subtle variety. Their soft and muted tones play well with most styles and decor.
