Tiger Rug is a purveyor of Tibetan oriental carpets. We have been importing oriental carpets from Nepal since the summer of 2000. The wool used in the production of these carpets is derived from sheep that graze in the Himalayan mountain range of Tibet at altitudes of 12,000 feet and higher. Due to this high altitude and extreme cold temperatures, the wool produced has unusually high lanolin content. It is the lanolin content that gives the wool a natural stain resistance and a very soft feel to the touch. This wool is considered the finest wool available in the world for the weaving of carpets. Tiger Rug uses only 100% Tibetan Himalayan wool in our carpet making process. We do not blend our wool – ever.
The Craftsman Collection
The Craftsman Collection carpets are based on authentic designs and motifs. These unique carpets are hand-knotted in Nepal using hand-carded, hand-spun and hand-dyed Himalayan wool giving them a wonderfully soft feel and exceptional durability. The soft, muted colors chosen are sure to complement any Arts & Crafts interior.
With its impeccable heritage, use of natural materials, and hand-crafted quality, the Craftsman Collection embodies the true spirit of the Arts & Crafts Movement.
