Tibetan rug making is an ancient, culturally specific craft that can be traced back to roughly the 17th century. Typically made from Tibetan highland sheep wool called'changpel,' Tibetan carpets are used for a variety of purposes, including for flooring, wall-hangings and horse saddles. While the introduction of modern technology has relegated some aspects of rug making to machines in workshops, the finest Tibetan carpets and rugs are still created the old-fashioned way - by hand.

Designs of Tibetan rugs have largely been influenced by Chinese designs and sometime incorporated traditional folk motifs. The item "Vintage Tibetan Monastic Runner BB5716" is in sale since Wednesday, February 15, 2017. This item is in the category "Antiques\Rugs & Carpets".
