Tibetan Wool Mat

It is likely that carpet weaving in Tibet has a long  history.  That being said, there is not a lot of substantial evidence or material on early carpet weaving.  Most of the carpets that have survived have done so only as a result of their use in high altitude monasteries where they were seldom used as seating and pillar covers.

Made of all wool with a high cut pile, this rug was most likely a sitting mat.  The overall pattern has repeating floral beige medallions on a rich orange ground surrounded with smaller abstract images.  The medallions throughout the mat create a great sense of movement and a suggestion of Chinese influence.
