Hand-Knotted Nepalese Tibetan Rugs

Quality Rugs, Customized


Buddha was born in Lumbini in 563 BCE, Nepal.  Buddha was the enlightened one.  He invented the path to eliminating the Dukkha, which is called Bodhi Marga.  The bodhi path leads to getting enlightenment as Buddha.

Meaning of Bodhi

Bodhi is the purified Citta.  Regular practice leads to generating the Bodhi Citta.  Buddha had prescribed several courses to develop Bodhi Citta.  One of the effective ways of being Bodhi is taking the support of Dhyana.  The Dhyana masters suggest laying practitioners take the help of auspicious signs and symbols to help them to be familiar and closer to Bodhi practice effectively.


Himalayan people of Nepal have been weaving and using hand knotted rugs in their daily life for generations.  The rug weaving is the genetic skills of the people. They use rugs to practice dharma as well as for the flooring purpose.

Our Rugs Production Stages

We provide the overall services which are required to manufacture rugs from the starting stage to the finished rugs and deliver them to your required address.


The first step in the rugs production stage is the design. We usually get the designs from our clients and determine the right color to be used, the size of the rugs that are required, and predict the days of its completion.


Once the design of the rugs is completed, we then choose the right color for dyeing the loom. We use the vegetable dyeing method which is natural and eco-friendly to nature as well as to the rugs themselves. 

As per the client’s choice, we also use machine dyeing which is done in closed chambers and uses only high-quality dye stuff from internationally recognized brands.


Once the dyeing is completed, we hand over it to our workers. We have both skilled women and men laborers having experience of more than 10 years in this field.

We provide equal gender opportunity to our workers and operate under the Nepal Government’s Labor Act. 


Once the weaving of the rugs is complete, we then proceed to the next stage, which is the cleaning and washing of the rugs. A good-washed rug determines the shine and the texture of the finished rugs.

We wash our rugs more than two times so that the fabric of the rug gets enhanced and loses the unclean filaments to obtain a beautiful look of the rugs.


After the washed rugs are completely dried, we then start the trimming process. Trimming helps to highlight the curves and patterns of the rugs which are all done carefully and around 3- 4 workers are assigned to each of our rugs.


After the rugs are well trimmed, we then dry them under the sun and stretch them to obtain the perfect size and shape of the rugs.

Finishing Touch

Once the rugs are dried properly, we then trim them again to enhance the design of the rugs. The rugs are recleaned to give it a proper finishing touch.


After close supervision by our team members, we then pack the finished rugs in a clean room. The rugs are wrapped and sealed in a polythene sheet to preserve them from any harmful substance.

It is wrapped again in a Hessian cloth and sewn by hand so it doesn’t get damaged while transporting it to the client’s required address.
