I purchased this at a Tibetan Refugee Centre in Kathmandu.
I do collect rugs from different part of the world. This one adds to my favorite collection.
An American lady from Boston happened to stay at the same hotel in Kathmandu. She also acquired some pieces from the same place. She had a degree in fabrics or something like that. She told me Tibetan rugs are one of the finest on the world. She was embarrassed to pay so cheap for such high quality work of art.
It looks damn good in my office.
Be warned. Its wool. Wash it only with cold water.
