Item Description...
The book first presents a brief history of Tibetan carpet and textile weaving, from their early origins, to 'planted pile' textiles, Drumste knotted-pile carpets of the Wangden Valley, to the warp-backed rugs of the Lhuntse region. It then traces the emergence of Tibet as a commercial carpet weaving centre and outlines steps in learning the art of weaving, from apprentice to master-weaver. In a final chapter, the authors give an account of the wide range of uses of Tibetan rugs: by nomads, the aristocracy, and the cavalry, as well their ecclesiastical and equestrian uses, and their use as floor rugs.

The work is illustrated with 124 beautiful colour plates of rugs, showing details of their intricate designs and rich colours, accompanied by detailed descriptions of each.

The authors are both natives of the region, and not only are considered to be eminent scholars in Tibetan Studies, but one holds the important position of Director of the Tibetan Museum, whilst the other is a prominent founder and promoter of sustainable enterprises in Tibet through commercial carpet and wool handicraft production, forestry conservation and ecotourism.
