The company partners with the finest Nepalese producer of Tibetan carpets, a mill that preserves the tradition of a centuries-old native craft. Tibetan or New Zealand wool or silk is hand-carded, hand-spun and pot-dyed, then hand-knotted to produce rugs with a unique luster and lifelong durability. The mill has the largest loom in Nepal (30′ x 50′) and is able to make rugs of almost any size. Variations in pile height, knot count and combinations of wool and silk are also available. The mill can match colors and render designs in unexpected and original ways, resulting in true works of art for the home.
The company’s GoodWeave licensed weaving partners have won numerous awards for excellence from the Nepalese government for their progressive employment practices.
