Tibetan Gabbeh 7'11" x 10' Rug

Lot 0090 Details

Description
Tibetan Gabbeh area rug with orange and grey lily pattern border and grey open field; measures approximately 7'11" x 10'; in Good overall condition. Tibetan rug making is an ancient, traditional craft. Tibetan rugs are traditionally made from Tibetan highland sheep's wool, called changpel. Tibetans use rugs for many purposes ranging from flooring to wall hanging to horse saddles, though the most common use is as a seating carpet. A typical sleeping carpet measuring around is called a khaden. The knotting method used in Tibetan rug making is different from that used in other rug making traditions worldwide. Some aspects of the rug making have been supplanted by cheaper machines in recent times, especially yarn spinning and trimming of the pile after weaving. However, some carpets are still made by hand.
