Upgrade Your Home with Tamarian Area Rugs & Carpets
Tamarian rugs are nothing short of classic elegance. These designer pieces are hand-knotted area rugs made from premium Tibetan highland sheep wool. The wool is combined with top-notch silk for added variations. Artisans then use chrome-based dyes to complement the premier fiber and produce bright colors for the rugs.
Tamarian rugs are backed with a long history of traditional methods such as the Tibetan knots. The Tibetan loop’s ancient technique, also called the Senneh knot, ensures the rugs’ delicate quality. With the handcrafting techniques of Tamarian artisans, collectors are guaranteed of long-lasting artwork in their homes.
The hand-knotted rugs are remarkably soft yet durable. These qualities are due to the Tibetan highland sheep’s environment — a territory ideal for exemplary wool production. Located at a high altitude of 10,000 feet, Tibetan sheep produce fine fibers perfect for rugs and carpets. Apart from softness and durability, Tamarian luxury wool rugs are soil-resistant, making them practical designer pieces for every collector.
Materials and Weaving Techniques
The primary material used in Tamarian carpet weaving is wool from Tibetan highland sheep. These sheep roam Tibetan plateaus that can range over 10,000 feet high. Their wool is very high in lanolin content, a property that makes Tibetan wool one of the world’s most durable materials. Most Tamarian rugs are made completely from wool or are combined with other fabrics like silk, helm, or linen.
Skilled artisans use centuries-old hand-knotting techniques in crafting these rugs. They are woven using the Tibetan Loop Senneh knot where every knot is tied around two vertical fibers before it is looped around a metal rod. Afterwards, the entire row of knots is cut from the rod, exposing a pile.
Colors and Patterns
Tamarian Tibetan rugs undergo an age-old pot dyeing process to ensure that the color is consistent throughout its fibers and surfaces. They are submerged, simmered, and spun with natural dyes to achieve the desired shade. Over 1,200 colors are used in making these rugs.
The patterns differ from one rug to the next, which may follow a contemporary theme, traditional motif, or transitional aesthetic. You can identify common elements such as geometric shapes, leaves, flowers, or “ink splatters” on its surface. These provide depth and style that can easily be adorned to any living space.
