About the piece

The name Tibetan carpets actually indicates that the handmade carpets are from Tibet, the worlds highest situated area, but it also means carpets handmade from the Tibetan fugitives living in Nepal.   In Tibet there is an ethnic group of nomads that wander between different pasture lands along with their sheep and goats and the sale of wool in this region is an important source of income.
