The Patan Collection
The art of Tibetan carpet making is an ancient, traditional craft dating back to 7th century AD. 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.
The process of making Tibetan carpets is unique in the sense that the knotting method is different—allowing for denser knots—from those used in other rug making traditions worldwide. The unique Tibetan weaving method combined with Tibetan highland wool, considered the best wool in the world, makes Tibetan carpets heirloom quality.
