Place of origin
Knotting in Nepal has only begun since the escape of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans accompanying him in 1959. Under the direction of the dedicated Zurich importer, Jo Iten-Maritz, the homeless were taught to knot rugs with traditional patterns according to the Tibetan tradition from 1966 onwards. Once the designs of the rugs were adapted to contemporary, Western tastes, the amount of knotting in Nepal increased considerably. The central shopping point is the capital city of Kathmandu. Most of the production facilities are also located there.
Nepal rugs are knotted using a special technique. When knotting, a kind of continuous knot is looped linearly over a rod, so that a row of loops is created in a horizontal sequence. After the knotting rod is completely covered with these loops, they are cut open from above in this area, so that the pile fans out and a velour is created. This finally gives the knot the shape of a Persian knot. However, this quick process is only possible because the Nepal Tibetan rugs are hardly patterned and are plain in many areas.
The pile is a plain yellow beige. The simple design is understated, but can also provide a great design accent. The monochrome appearance of this rug fits perfectly in any environment.
The checkered pattern is impressive due to its contrasts and yet it is unobtrusive. Lovers of symmetry and structure will love this rug.
The plain o panel is framed by a border in yellow beige. This gives the rug depth despite its relatively simple design.
You are not the first to appreciate this Nepal Rug. It has had owners before you who have cherished and used it. It was hand knotted about 1990. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Nepal Rug because we think it is as it is effect. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.
The pile of this Nepal Rug is made of a durable mixture of wool and viscose. Viscose also acetate silk or rayon is generally obtained from the natural product of cellulose, in other words from the raw material, wood. In India the cellulose mass is obtained from bamboo. In an elaborate process, the pulpy cellulose is pulled into a continuous textile yarn. This is why viscose is also referred to as the continuous filament yarn. Because of the silky sheen of the yarn, viscose obtained from bamboo is also called "Bamboo Silk". The colloquially used designation "artificial silk" is not permitted under the German Textile Labelling Act TKG. The weft and warp threads of this Nepal Rug are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
