A Tamarian rug is a true work or art. Every step of production is done with the care and touch of the human hand. The techniques and tools have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The materials are the finest nature offers; from the lanolin-rich, hand carded hand spun Tibetan wool, to the small lot dying process. Tamarians dye-masters use finely manipulated chrome dyes to enhance the wools natural boldness and luster, while maintaining its colorfastness for decades to come. Each rug is woven knot by knot on an upright loom, using the Tibetan loop Senneh knot. When weaving is completed, the rug is cut from the loom, sheared and trimmed, and given a final wash to bring out the rich hues and variations that are a hallmark of every Tamarian carpet.
