“pot-dyed, hand-spun and hand-knotted”
“Everything is hand-done. They hand-card the wool, hand-dye it, and after that, they weave. When you see the hand-made rug and machine-made rug, you can see, right away, the difference. This takes so much skill and tradition, and the outcome is very beautiful.” – Lama Wangchuk, Silk Road Carpets
“The carpet industry continues to be an important source of income for Tibetans living in Tibet, Nepal, and India. The shapes and designs of the carpets have changed with the demands of Western consumers. Floor carpets in many sizes, some with non-Tibetan motifs, are now produced in cottage industries and large factories. ” – www.tibetanculture.org
